How to Tell Him


Your Alice books are amazing!  I feel so much like that the things she goes through, such as having your first crush or moving to an entirely different state, has happened to me and like it was just as stressful for her as it was for me.  If I had the chance to meet you or Alice, I would have had a hard time deciding!  I live in Brooklyn and if you lived in New York I would be searching the streets of New York to find you!  One question though?  I have a crush on this boy.  We’ve been good friends since 2nd Grade.  I told him back then that I liked him and he liked me back, but we grew apart in 3rd and decided to just be good friends instead.  But how in the whole wide world am I supposed to tell him I like him again?

I don’t know.  How old are you now?  Remember my old advice–show, don’t tell.  Ask him out with a group of friends so it won’t feel like a “date.”  And pay extra attention to him.  Flirty teasing helps.  He’ll get the drift.
