Alice feels like she doesn’t fit in anywhere. Her parents are constantly shipping her to different schools and never seem to have time for her. Kids her age treat her like she is weird and Alice feels big and has large curly untamable hair. Then there is Millie, she is a bigfoot-well a little bigfoot, and she is always wondering about the human world and wishes she could experience some of the things she has seen on the Internet. When Alice is sent to a boarding school in the woods, Alice and Millie’s worlds collide.
I enjoyed this book. It is fun to think about how our world would look to others and to imagine a community of bigfoots living in the woods. The theme of not feeling like you fit in is explored well and the characters are likable.
