I Feel Like Tearing Up
I hope you’re doing well 🙂 I’m writing to let you know that you huge made a huge impact in my life; Alice has been with me since elementary school and I can’t put into words how much the series means to me.
Even as I’m writing this, I feel like tearing up because it’s hard to imagine how much she’s grown since I first picked up The Agony of Alice at the library nine years ago. It’s been such a long time since she first met Liz and Pam and had her first kiss on the porch with Patrick. I, myself, was pretty young back then. Now I’m in college, and after years and years of laughing, crying, and learning from Alice, I am have a very hard time imagining the series ending. It’s surreal and I will probably cry after I read the last book.
But Alice will never really be gone, will she? She has definitely touched my heart and the heart of many others, so thank you so much for for writing the whole series. Your books are truly one of a kind and by now, I feel like Alice is a close friend.
I feel like crying myself when I read letters from college girls, and married women, and mothers of children now Alice’s age, who have been reading the Alice books all these years! Thank you so much for writing to me.
