This is a big task, but I am confident I am up to it.Introducing Candice Phee: twelve years old, hilariously honest and a little . odd.

So she sets about trying to 'fix' all the problems of all the people [and pets] in her life.Laugh-out-loud funny and wonderfully touching, My Life as an Alphabet is a delightful novel about an unusual girl who goes to great lengths to bring love and laughter into the lives of everyone she cares about.
