Summer With Alice

I'm thinking it's possibly the first day of summer vacation for some lucky kids out there today! I'll have to write an ode to summer vacation (ahhh summer reading...long car trips...sun dappled FREEDOM!) but for now I'm happily spending this summery day with Alice Kathleen McKinley while I repackage her series by the prolific Phyllis Reynolds Naylor. If I had met Alice in the 80's I think we would have been friends. Do you have any extra-special summer plans?
