I Was Up Until 4:00 AM
Just wanted to share how thoroughly pleased I am with Intensely Alice! I got home around 11:30 PM after a long night of work, went into my bedroom to change out of my work clothes, and was delighted to see a little box from Simon & Schuster sitting on my bed! After grabbing some dinner and catching up with a friend via Facebook IM, I finallyyyy got to read the book! I was up until 4:00 AM and couldn’t put it down! It’s so hard for me to decide what my #1 favorite Alice book is, but this one’s definitely a contender; I laughed aloud at Mr. Watts, felt proud of the gang and how much they’ve grown up, and cried my eyes out through the last few chapters.
I read my first Alice book when I was probably 9 or 10, and will be 21 later this year. Even though I’m considerably older than Alice now, I love that she and her friends have grown with me. I’ve started to collect the series; as a college student working part time, I try to find soft-cover, used copies on Amazon and such. I only have four more books to get until I’m caught up, and I’d love to have the whole collection to share with my daughter, if I ever have a daughter someday.
Just wanted to say your new book was fantastic (as always!) and I’m eagerly waiting another year for the next one!
I’m sorry I kept you up so late, but am just elated to know that you were that interested in the book. Thanks so much for writing to me. I hope you complete your collection of all the Alice books!
