Comfort for Homesickness
Hello! I originally discovered the Alice series nearly 10 years ago. Alice was like a friend to me throughout late elementary and middle school. I really believe your books were an important part in my growing up during those years. As I grew older I think I drifted from the things I used to love and I stopped reading the series regularly. I’m now 21 and a junior in college. I’m currently studying abroad in Germany and I had quite a shock a few weeks ago when I discovered one of the Alice books in a local bookstore here. It really made my day to have something from my past pop back up again like that. It was the perfect touch of nostalgia and comfort for the bout of homesickness I was experiencing. I’ve spent the last month catching up on the books I missed (what a fun way to practice my German!). It really has been a blast catching up with Alice. You deserve so much thanks for the difference your books make in girls’ lives. And thanks for making my time over here a little more enjoyable. 🙂 I’m eagerly awaiting the next book in May!
It’s letters like yours that keep me going. Thanks so much for writing to me. I love knowing you enjoy the books wherever you are!
