Alice Parker's Metamorphosis by Nicola Palmer

Alice Parker is a thirteen year old on the threshold of change.  But not quite into womanhood.

This is a story for younger children, but that didn't stop me from thoroughly enjoying it.  I suppose it's slightly different reading it as a grown woman and understanding the greater meaning of her change.  Or it might just be a kiddies book.  

This is very well written.  Alice's fear of the unknown, her best friend's unquestioning help and Alice's brother - a bit awkward around her.

A very nice story indeed.
