I am a big fan of your Alice books and I’m so confused. How many books are there on total now because Amazon says there are 24 but your website says 21….. I am confused, I think you are right though. I just wanted to check because I didn’t want to read them out of order. Thanks! have a great rest of the summer!
If you’ll check the fan mail page of my Alice website www.alicemckinley.com you’ll find “The Books in Order” at the top of the page. Click on that, and it will list the three prequels, as well as the regular Alice books up to “Intensely Alice.” I’ll ask the website to update it for the most recent books, and have posted all of them on the fan letter part of my website. The whole series, including the three prequels, consist of 28 books–two are yet to be published, and will come out in 2012 and 2013. What may be confusing, however, is that the publisher recently bound together, in a fat paperback, all three books of her freshman year, and titled it “I Like Him, He Likes Her.” They bound together all three books of her sophomore year and titled it “It’s Not Like I Planned It This Way.” And the three books of her junior year are bound together under the title “Please Don’t be True.” You’ll find these books in the bookstores. The three books of her senior year will come out after “Alice On Board” is published next year. I believe that the final book, ending the series–“Always Alice”–will come out all on its own.
