About the Book
Thirteen-year-old Alice Parker knows something isn't right; mysterious aches and pains, a craving for sugar that’s out of control. Suddenly she is top of the class in every subject.
Baffled by what is happening to her and feeling at odds with the world, Alice can't take much more. Only when she collapses and experiences a life-changing transformation does she discover why she is different.
But this new, incredible identity brings its own challenges and Alice isn't convinced she can rise to them. She just wants to be normal!
The fact is she's anything but...
- "[...] The plot was strong and the sub plot also stood up to close scrutiny.The characters were memorable and adorable. I will not hesitate in buying the sequel." - Harasrrek (Amazon-UK)
- "I love a good kids book! This is not a good one but a great one. I totally fell in love with the Finwip society and Alice Parker in particular. The writing was very easy to read and i really enjoyed immersing myself in Alice's world. This is a magical tale that is a must read for kids of all ages.[...]" - Emzibah (Amazon)
- "[...] Nicola Palmer is a great writer for children and this is a good debut. Alice Parker's story is well-constructed with interesting twists and turns, great description and enjoyable characters. " - Squinty McConkers (Amazon-UK)
About the Author
Following a degree in modern languages and literature, Nicola put her dream of writing children’s books on hold while she set up a business as my main source of income. The business was in landscape design, after a second degree trying to find her niche. She enjoyed the opportunity to create fantasy gardens for shows, including a fairytale garden at Hampton Court.
But sadly, that is just a small part of the landscape design business, and she still needed to be more creative.
So, Nicola Palmer put finally pen to paper two years ago, when the idea for the Alice Parker Adventures insisted on being written down.
Nicola Palmer: "My readers are generally aged 10+ and have outgrown girly stories, but are not particularly keen on romance or vampires. The Alice Parker series provides a gripping read that fits the void between children’s and young adult fiction. Having said that, plenty of adults have enjoyed the books too!
I am currently working on Book 3 of the Alice Parker Adventures, due for release in summer 2012."
