  Alice by Accident  
  Alice by Acident

Nine-year-old Alice discovered ages ago that she was born by accident, and that's the sort of private thing you don't write about for school.   So she tries to write two accounts – the one for her teacher, and her private ‘ortobiography’, in which she tries to sort out her feelings about her over-stressed single mother, the father she has never met, and the rest of her sometimes confusing life.   She tells how her flamboyant, interfering, beloved grandmother Gene came along, how she changed Alice's life, making it richer but also more complicated.  Because now she’s gone.
