Alice-Miranda in New York is written by Jacqueline Harvey and illustrated by J. Yi.
It is book number 5 from the ALICE-MIRANDA Series.
The book focuses on Alice-Miranda from Winchesterfield-Downsfordvale Academy for Proper Younger Ladies visiting the New York City. She is very excited and looking forward to seeing the amazing skyscrapers, the beautiful Central Park and to be attending Mrs Kimmel’s School for Girls. Alice-Miranda is thrilled that her parents are re-opening their elegant store after the latest renovations.
But things don’t go as planned. The renovations are slow to be completed: stock going missing, deliveries not being made on time, and the vain and selfish Morrie, the store competition, being even more annoying than usual. As always there is drama, but this time it is between the grown-ups. The official re-opening of Alice-Miranda’s family’s department store, Highton’s on Fifth, is scheduled on the same day as the official opening of The Grand Salon hosted by Finkelstein’s, the department store owned by Lucinda’s parents.
However, Alice-Miranda is making new friends and enjoying her sight seeing. At Mrs Kimmel’s School she becomes great friends with the girl called Lucinda, who is very shy and reluctant to have Alice-Miranda come and visit her parents. As we read this book, we become even more curious to discover Lucinda’s secret.
Jacqueline Harvey got her readers used to Alice-Miranda’s resourcefulness: she is easily making friends with her kindness, openness, generosity and bubbly personality. And Alice-Miranda is saving the day and setting things right. Will these be true for Alice-Miranda’s adventure in New York?
