As a result, Alice had trouble integrating with the group, and lived for many months alone until she was big and brave enough to try interacting with them. The arrival of Malcolm and Simone co-incided with this transition for Alice, and made it easier for her-- these two newcomers took to her immediately, and together the three learned to live together with the others.
