Thank you for an amazing childhood!


I am writing to you not only because I want to thank you for writing such amazing books based off a girl we can all relate to but because I was wondering if in the near future you would write any more Alice McKinley books? This series definitely touched me in more ways than one because I can relate to most of what Alice has undergone throughout the whole series. All of those awkward questions thatAlice had, were the very same exact ones that I had when I was around her age too. I grew up reading the Alice book series and along with her, I matured into a young adult. Rather than seeing her as a fictional character I see her as one of my close friends which is why I would love if you would write ore books based off of her. The Alice series have touched millions of girls’ lives because we all undergo the awkward stages of our teenage years and we also always had questions regarding our bodies. Thank you so much for writing such amazing books!

Thank you so much for your email.  I’m just delighted that they meant so much to  you.  I think that no matter how close we feel to sisters, friends or mothers, there are often just questions that we don’t want to ask of anyone; they are just too private.  And I’m pleased that readers react so well to them.  I really believe that I have ended the Alice series where I did.  I’m not sure the readership would have followed Alice into her sixties and seventies, but I appreciate your loving the books that much to suggest it.
