Alis was an amazing book, and it met all of my expectations. Not only was it cleverly written, but the characters were divine. Alis, a fourteen year old girl, cant stand the thought of getting her husband picked by her parents. Not only was this bad enough, but her soon to be husband is three times her age, at forty. Desperate for escape, she leaves town with a friend of her mother’s. There, she finds she loves another, and when the day comes that she must return home, she leaves for the city. In hopes of making a life for herself there, she waits the rough patches out.
This novel was an amazing piece of literature that made me laugh towards the end. With amazing plot twists, things you’d never expect, this has made the list to one of my well-liked books. Granted, it wasn’t my favorite book in this world, but it wasn’t my least favorite either. You laugh a little, cry a little, moan a little. If you’re looking for a fairly easy read, I recommend it.
