 This isn't just about me. It's also about the other people in my life - my mother, my father, my dead sister Sky, my penpal Denille, Rich Uncle Brian, Earth-Pig Fish and Douglas Benson From Another Dimension. These are people [with the exception of Earth-Pig Fish, who is a fish] who have shaped me, made me what I am. I cannot recount my life without recounting elements of theirs. 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. But she has a big heart, the very best of intentions and an unwavering determination to ensure everyone is happy. So she sets about trying to 'fix' all the problems of all the people [and pets] in her life.

This book is beautiful and I love it to bits. We read it for school and some chapters makes me want to to cry. Candice is different to everyone else but the way she thinks of her self makes this book more beautiful. Once you have finished this book you will look at the world differently. I would recommend it to anyone.

So she sets about trying to 'fix' all the problems of all the people [and pets] in her life. When i read this book it made me feel sad about her dead sister but happy because she was trying to maske wevery one else happy. This book makes you stop and realise all the good things in life.

My Life as an Alphabet is a hilariously interesting novel, written by Barry Jonsberg. This lonely girl shares her secret of how she lived her teenage years. The friends she makes and the things that she does for enjoyment. Candice Phee shares her story of how she grew up and how the people around her affected the way she is today. This book is an amazing book for anyone who wants to know about this girls very interesting life. The way she shares her story is through the alphabet, her school assignment. I loved this book to bits because it was just so interesting the things that this girl does in her life. Everyone should read this book.

I think when the girl has to do her life as an alphabet she has trouble as she gets bullied a lot. I think that just because she is different she shouldn't still be picked on. Over all it was a great book which I think people should read.

Ha Ha, Candice is funny! I like the way she  is so optimistic about everything. I wish I was like that :)  This is awesome, I like her goldfish. Nearing the end there is a whole heap of swearing (Words aren't too bad), but apart from that, It is probably ok for all ages!! The first time I read it, it wasn't awesome, but the next few times, when everything came together, it was great! I strongly reccomend it, especially if you like stories about friendship.
