12-year-old Alice has never fit in. Her wealthy parents have tried sending her to many different types of schools, but they always end in disaster. This year, she is sent to the somewhat hippie-commune like "Experimental Center for Love and Learning." While it doesn't exactly start off great... it's far less awful than anywhere else Alice has been.
Millie, the smallest Yare in her tribe (that's "bigfoot" to us no-furs) also has never fit in well. She has always had an unhealthy interest in humans and their activities, particularly singing, and television.
Naturally, when Alice and Millie eventually meet, the two outcasts become fast friends.
Jeremy, who lives in a nearby town, has also never fit in. His only real interest is in Bigfoot hunting. He meets the similarly inclined girl, Jo, and they think they may be onto something going on near the town of Standish... especially near that weird "school," the Experimental Center for Love and Learning.
A nice, mostly sweet story, about two outcasts becoming close friends. There is no supernatural or fantasy feel to the book, in spite of Millie and her tribe of Yare. The reader will relate to them just as well as to the human characters. The book wraps up nicely, but with a few big fingers pointing to the sequel. ( )

A slightly scattered plot that maybe needed more chapters from Jeremy's POV to really do what it needed to do, occasionally clunky prose, and far too many good intentions pushing it toward preachiness added up to a swing and a miss for this first middle-grade effort from Weiner. On the plus side, Alice and Millie were wonderful characters and their friendship was sweet and touching. Plus, Bigfoots! But, overall, the book just didn't quite work for me. ( )

Off to her eighth boarding school, this one an Experimental Center in the woods proclaiming to respect everyone’s uniqueness, twelve-year-old Alice Mayfair knows instinctively that this new school will still be like all the others. Teased and bullied at the previous seven schools about “the Mane,” her big, wild, uncontrollable hair, her large body, her strength, her big feet, Alice is used to not fitting in and having no friends. But when she saves a girl named Millie Maximus, who lives across the lake, from drowning, she discovers a girl like no one she has ever met before. Millie is a Bigfoot, who is fascinated by the “No Furs,” even though her clan has taught her that the “No-Furs,” like Alice, are dangerous.Together they forge an unlikely friendship and discover they are more alike than different. Threatened by the outside world, they soon find themselves in a race to protect the Bigfoot’s culture, a world where Alice feels she finally fits in, from discovery and ruin by aggressive Bigfoot hunters that are closing in. I absolutely loved this heartwarming novel, written for tweens, and recommend it to all readers.

I can understand why someone might not care that much for this one – the ending's a bit sappy and the lead-up to a sequel is a bit pushy – but I'll still, and perhaps a bit ungenerously, give it 3½*** for the quite good character of Alice and the excellent character of the spunky Millie.

Mmmph, but I'm not so sure I like the idea that a sequel seems to be in the making. ( )

The witching hour, somebody had once whispered to her, was a special moment in the middle of the night when every child and every grown-up was in a deep deep sleep, and all the things came out from hiding and had the world to themselves.  ---ROALD DAHL, THE BIG BFG
