Reminds me of my two best friends and me


This isn’t a question, but I just want to tell you how much I love your alice books. I know you probably get this a lot and might be tired of hearing this, but your books helped me get through my middle school years. how I’ve started High school, and it’s a little bit scary. In middle school I loved the alice books because the original trio (Alice, Pamela, and Elizabeth) reminded me so much of me and my two best friends. I was always like Alice, a little bit unsure of myself, a bit “in between” with everything, and my one friends was like Pamela, outspoken and the “cooler” one, and my other best friend like Elizabeth, more conservative and religious. When my parents were fighting, I could connect so much with Pamela’s experiences, when I had my first crush I could relate to alice’s feelings for patrick, and and I felt like I wasn’t alone for once. Now that two best friends aren’t going to the same high school as me and I wouldn’t see them as much. But I’ll always have alice to remind me of the good times we had. Again, thank you. I want to be a writer when I grow up just like you.



I’m so glad the books meant that much to you.  I had friends like this too, and I was sort of in the middle.  Sometimes I could identify more with the conservative one, and other times, it was more fun being with the other.  It seemed to me that a lot of my high school years was trying to figure out which person or which group I wanted to “be like.”  It was only later that I begin to feel I was growing into myself, my own unique person, just like everyone is down deep  Thanks for writing to me, and good luck in whatever you decide to do with your life.
