So far, I really like this book.

Another old favorite from my childhood!

Alexandra just moved into the apartment building. She is our nameless narrator's new best friend. Al is a self-proclaimed nonconformist, from her pigtails to her fractured family (divorce). Al is intelligent and needs companionship. With our narrator, Al finds a friend and a sense of home.

After all of these years, this is still a charming story.
