Comments When Audrey Met Alice

  • Melissa Landers

    What a fun read; I couldn't put it down! This is the story of Audrey, daughter of what we can assume is the first female POTUS. Frustrated when the novelty of White House life wears off, Audrey finds a kindred spirit in long-deceased first daughter, Alice Roosevelt, through her diary entries. I could feel Audrey's angst as I cringed and laughed alongside her during this journey. The writing is clean and the pace is perfect. Highly recommend to middle grade and YA readers!

    Interesting MG take on history, real and imagined. WAMA follows the fictional first daughter of the first female president as she copes with being an only child in the fishbowl of the White House. She gets herself in trouble when she finds the long lost diary of Alice Roosevelt and tries to emulate her "eat the world" mentality. I thought this book would have been better without the introduction of the politically charged issue of gay marriage. It was pretty well handled but it always bothers me [...]

    "It was ok." Great concept, but obvious & superficial. Maybe a more naive reader than I will get a kick out of it, but it's not likely to get reread, I don't imagine, nor pushed on friends. I do have to admit that, when I requested it, I was somehow under the impression that it was a picture-book. I think it would have been better as such. Most of the material here is filler, imo. And, again, a slightly younger audience, say 6-8 instead of 8-12, would, I believe, enjoy it more.

    did i care for this? no, not reallye plot was semi-okay, if there could even be a plot. honestly, most of the book was just audrey acting out so that she could be more noticed by her parents. although i understand the angst she feels, i just can't really grasp what outcome she had except for ruining a b/g platonic relationship that existedother issue was the gay marriage essay and protest that was brought into the book. honestly, the entire LGBTQ+ part of the novel seemed forced, as if bringing [...]

    It wasn’t easy to be the First Kid and Audrey was definitely not having a good time because of her status. After moving into the White House, Audrey felt as though she were living in a prison. Could her life change now that she had access to the private journal of Alice Roosevelt?Audrey was a lonely kid. With her parents busy working all the time, she didn’t really have anyone to talk with. Because she didn’t have any sibling, she could only play alone at the bowling alley inside the White [...]

    I am glad that this was a pick for Dahlia's Book Club, because I really enjoyed it and probably wouldn't have read it otherwise. This one was pretty cute and fun, while also having some serious moments. Overall, I didn't think this read too young for me. It seemed more like it was on the upper end of Middle Grade, since the main character was in 8th grade, and was a teenager.I enjoyed how this really showed that being the president's daughter isn't necessarily an amazing experience. It shows how [...]

    Fun, but ultimately light-weight. It delves a little too frequently into standard aftermath a of a tweenager's incredibly bad decisions (sneaking in a boy! sneaking out! risqué clothes! yelling at parents!), exacerbated by doing all of it in the White House. Audrey is young and clueless to the point of frustration, though as a thirteen year old she should probably be excused. She is, after all, lead astray by trying to follow the advice of Alice Roosevelt's diary, which seems to have been writt [...]

    The book "When Audrey Met Alice" was a cute story, but it was a little basic. It was the typical story of a 13 year old facing middle school girl problems. But, the twist in the story is that she is also the first daughter. I think that the story has an inspirational theme with her standing up for herself and believing in herself.

    EAT UP THE WORLD!! Love Audrey, love Alice, love EMILY SPINACH!

    Audrey Rhodes is the president's daughter and all she wants to do is have a normal life: hang out with her friends, attend parties, and go on class field trips. Instead, she feels like living at 1600 is a prison rather than a privilege. But one night she discovers an old diary in her bedroom that belonged to Alice Roosevelt, former First Daughter and well-documented Washington rabble-rouser. Suddenly, reading of Alice's eccentric ways (that included walking around the White House with a garter s [...]

  • Katy Upperman

    I loved this book. Really and truly. It was fun to read from the perspective of past Pre-Teen Katy, and it was also an easy story to relate to as Adult Katy. It’s a coming-of-age story, one that reminds readers that teenagers are not hopeless and adults (even Very Important Adults) aren’t perfect. It’s so much more than the lighthearted shenanigans-in-the-White-House story I was expecting.When Audrey Met Alice is two stories in one. It switches back and forth between First Daughter Audrey [...]

    I don't read that many MG novels, but I was totally captivated by When Audrey Met Alice, a story about a first daughter Audrey Rose discovering Alice Roosevelt's diary in one of the closets in the White House. As Audrey tries to adjust to her own life as first daughter, Alice through her diary becomes Audrey's guide. I love how Behrens uses historical information in this novel and mixed it with a modern story. I was transported to the White House and Audrey's school. I got a very strong sense on [...]

    When Audrey Met Alice tells the story of a First Daughter who should be on top of the world, with a newly-elected president for a mom, she gets to live in the White House. But having to move away from a cozy home for a formal mansion, start at an intimidating new school, and get trailed everywhere by Secret Service isn't always smooth sailing. That's why she's so intrigued (and mischievously inspired) when she finds Alice Roosevelt's hidden diary in a closet of the Residence and learns how the " [...]

    Audrey Rhodes just wants to have a pizza party with her friends. It shouldn't be so impossible. But when you are the daughter of the president, a security breech can really mess up your plans. Not to mention the Secret Service agents following your every move. And friends at school calling you Fido behind your back.But Audrey finds a new friend when she uncovers Alice Roosevelt's diary under a floorboard in the dining room. Separated by 100 years, Alice's diary entries mirror Audrey's experience [...]

  • Emery Lord

    I loved this book even more than I thought I would--and I've been obsessed with reading it for months. Audrey's narration made a very unusual situation (being President's daughter!) into something so cringe-ably familiar and easy to relate to: crushes and feeling like a thirteen year-old outsider, not having enough freedom as you form your own identity. Add in the sassy wisdom of Alice Roosevelt, and it's just perfect.In all the best ways, this book reminds me of my favorites when I was in middl [...]

    WHEN AUDREY MET ALICE is fantastic!! I love the blend of the historical with the modern day-- it is so fun to see how the main character (and 1st daughter of the United States) Audrey Rhodes is influenced by historical 1st daughter Alice Roosevelt via her diaries! The history embedded in the plot is SO FUN! Post-reading, I find myself wanting to know more, more, MORE about life in the White House and Alice Roosevelt!What else? The middle grade voice is pitch perfect! Audrey is so funny. Best of [...]

  • Tara

    I am completely smitten with this book! The perfect blend of historical and modern-day, readers will find themselves torn between which character they love more--wild, headstrong Alice Roosevelt or searching-for-her-place Audrey Rhodes. Both characters feel extremely real, as do Audrey's parents, who could easily have been cartoons or been largely absent from the story. Instead, Ms. Behrens brings teenager-parents conflicts gloriously to life, with every situation having added stakes because of [...]

  • Christine

    WHEN AUDREY MET ALICE is a fun breezy read accessable to MG readers. Author Rebecca Behrens cleverly uses a contemporary setting and character--the First Daughter of a Madam President of the United States--and blends it with historical diary accounts of Alice Roosevelt for a wild romp in the White House. Both contemporary and historical First Daughters are characters readers will easily identify with in their quests for friends, social lives, fun, food, and parental attention. I received an ARC [...]

    really good!

  • Barbara

    Cute premise of kid living in White House with mother as POTUS. Had some history in it and made me want to learn more about the Roosevelts.

    Let me start by saying that I don’t typically read middle-grade books, but my niece and nephews are getting to that age where they can start reading “real” books, and being the awesome aunt I am, I’m going to shower those ragamuffins with literature. So, I read this in preparation for that. While this book says it’s about the issues First Daughter Audrey faces when she is uprooted from her comfortable life and whisked away to the White House, and then plopped into a school that felt li [...]

    Living in the White House sounds like a dream come true. However according to Audrey Rhodes it's not. In fact Audrey feels like she is stuck in prison, but when she finds Alice Roosevelt's diary her whole world changes. She reads Alice's diary, and starts to learn how to make the White House more fun. Even if that means to break the rules a little. But all Audrey is trying to explain to her parents, (and the White House staff) is that first daughter just want to have fun! I recommend When Audrey [...]

  • Jenna

    Two and a half stars. Overall this book was a big disappointment, and I had been looking forward to it since before it came out. While I liked Audrey well enough, I couldn't get into the Alice's diary parts of the book at all. I almost gave it up until I decided that I would try skipping those sections, and suddenly the book got much better. Yay. I don't feel like I missed much, but this is problematic because why read a book titled When Audrey met Alice if you're just going to ignore Alice? Meh [...]

    In the fictional diary of Alice Roosevelt she signs off with Alice to Thine Self Be True. Alice Roosevelt definetely was true to herself. I was fascinated by her as a teen and loved her sense of rebellion. Yes cousin Eleanor was a do gooder but I preferred Alice's downright defiance. Audrey is a president's daughter in the White House. She feels stifled in this setting. One evening whilst exploring, she finds Alice Roosevelt Longworth's diary as a teenager. Reading Alice's feelings of being impr [...]

    What a fun read! Current day Audrey (a First Daughter, living in the White House) finds the hidden journal of Alice Roosevelt and finds a kindred spirit who faced similar challenges. Alice's journal entries include detailed historic descriptions of the early 1900's White House & society. Audrey's parts include current day issues like marriage equality and the hyper-vigilant media. Recommended for middle grade readers interested in history and current events.

  • Audrey

    When Audrey Met Alice by Rebecca Behrens is one of my new favorite books. Its tells the story of Audrey Lee Rhodes a first daughter how just wants to have fun. One night when she goes to make herself a cup of tea she finds a floorboard higher than the rest with the words “Eat up the World 1903.” Inside she sees a checkered cloth with something in it. Once she discovers what inside the napkin trouble starts.

  • Jo Sorrell

    This story gives the reader a glimpse of what it must be like to be the daughter of the POTUS and live in the White House. It's a mix of feelings. After finding Alice Roosevelt's diary under a floorboard in a class set, Audrey reads of Alice's crazy antics when she was a first daughter. The diary gives Audrey ideas to liven up her existence in the White House which don't always turn out so good for either Alice she r Audrey. This is a fun and humorous read.
