Alice and Patrick are getting married! They have to plan a wedding and honeymoon and set up a home, all for five thousand dollars -- as an assignment for a Critical Choices unit in health class. And some of their classmates are facing even tougher make-believe situations.
But sometimes Alice feels as if her real life is just as complicated. Critical Choices is supposed to teach Alice and her friends how to make decisions -- but how can you plan for anything when life seems like an obstacle course?
