ALICE UPSIDE DOWN cover image
Good storyline that is very suitable to a tween audience. Hits on many issues that this audience can sorely relate to - moving to a new town, dealing with an older brother, dealing with a new school and new classmates, making assumptions based on what you hear, and similar. What isn't common for everyone but certainly some, is that Alice's mother died five years ago and her relationship with her family, particularly her father Is affected by everyone's difficulty in dealing with their grief.
Alice McKinley finds her life seriously disrupted when her father moves her and her older brother Lester to a new town. Alice has a rough time adjusting to her new school, especially after she gets the stern Mrs. Plotkin as her core teacher. Feeling shy and isolated, Alice frequently escapes into a vivid fantasy life that occasionally gets her into hot water. But with a little unexpected help from Mrs. Plotkin, Alice learns not to judge by appearances or jump to conclusions. More importantly, she confronts her father over his inability to accept their loss and move on into the future. Starring Alyson Stoner (Cheaper by the Dozen), Luke Perry (John from Cincinnati), Lucas Grabeel (High School Musical), and Penny Marshall (Laverne and Shirley).
