Alice Is Part of Me


I’m 14 now, and last night I reread Now I’ll Tell You Everything for the tenth time. I just have to say how much of an impact Alice has made on my life. I read the Agony of Alice for the first time when I was ten, and I’ve read every single book since then. I know people tell you this all the time, but thank you so much for writing this series. I can relate to Alice in every single way. She’s the perfect role model: always one step ahead of me, going through the same things as me and showing me how to handle them. I don’t always think about it, but the Alice series has really had a big part in how I’ve grown up and thought about life. Even when I graduate high school and can no longer compare my life to hers on a semester-by-semester basis, I’ll always have the last book to refer to throughout my life.

I’m happy that you enjoyed the series so much.  I truly loved writing the books, as much as I’ve written anything else.  When I read back over some of the books now, I see that emotionally I invested a great deal of myself, and perhaps that’s why it was always so gratifying when it was time to write about another semester or another summer.
