i am doing a book report for my school on an author that we love. I chose you because your books are so realistic and they actually relate to real life happenings. And i was wondering what/who gave you the inspiration to right the Alice series? And why did it/they give you the inspiration to right it? Also i was wondering do some of the things that happen in the book, have actually happened to you in real life? Thank you.

I started these books so long ago it’s hard to remember exactly how I came to write them.  I think I wanted to write about a girl looking for a role model, and she discovers it–not in the most beautiful teacher at school, but the kindest.   Some of the things really happened to either me or my friends, but most of the stuff in the Alice books just came from my imagination.
