Your book was honestly like a life saver…

sure you get TONS of these letters and you have no idea how much I appreciate you taking the time to read mine. “Alice on Her Way” was honestly like an answered prayer to me. I’m thirteen, but have always acted older then my age, dating high school boys, etc. When I picked up this book from my school library I had no idea the effect it would have on me. Lately sex had been on my mind, you know, when to lose my virginity, all the touching and everything, and when i read the book, and you talked about self-values, I finally realized I was in way over my head, considering having sex at such a young age, and I feel stupid now, thinking that I could have lost my virginity to a guy I didn’t really care about. Everything Alice said and thought and felt made sense to me, and I realized I wasn’t alone, I’m not the only one feeling like this, all of the confusion. So I thought I would let you know that your book was honestly like a life saver, or a wake up call, so thank you, you truly are an amazing writer and person,

I’m so glad you found the book helpful. Perhaps “Dangerously Alice” will have meaning for you too. There are a lot of things to think about right now, a lot of decisions to be made. No girl wants to feel unnecessarily prudish, but neither does she want to do something she regrets. Most of us make some mistakes as we go through our teens–lots of little, embarrassing mistakes, sometimes big ones. But it sounds to me as though you have your head on straight. Thanks for writing.
