Sad the Series is ending

I have been reading Alice books since 3rd grade. I am now 13 years 
old and I have read every Alice book several times.
I know you get  tons of letters from your fans about how much they 
love your books but as I’ve been reading both
your books and your website for a while I figured it was time to let 
you know how much I Iove them.
I live in Arlington Virginia so I can relate to Alice’s environment 
as I live close to where she does in the books.
I have actually hiked Sugarloaf mountain so it was funny when Alice 
went there. I feel like Alice is a very relatable character,
  and even though we don’t have that much in common she seems like a 
real girl. When she was in younger grades she was
  so focused on embarrassment and I would feel better about my own 
embarrassing moments when I was reminded by your
books that everyone has them.
You write from Alice’s perspective about a lot of things that people 
don’t normally talk about and for me, that is one of the
best things about the Alice series. I know what the people on your 
website mean when they say they feel like Alice is a
real person. You have really captured the essence of what it’s like to 
be a girl growing up and I think Alice will never grow
outdated. I just finished Incredibly Alice-as soon as my copy arrived 
I immidiatly started reading and didn’t stop  until I finished
the book. Also I really enjoy the advice you post to people on your 
I just wanted to say thank you so much for writing a series I will 
continue to read over and over, and Alice does really
feel like my friend. I am so sad that the series is ending soon, but I 
will most definitly have all the books to reread. You are an
  amazing author!

I’m sad the series is ending too, but the very last book has so much in it about Alice’s life, that I think you will be quite satisfied after you read it.   I know that I’ve taken a chance writing about things other people don’t talk about, and sometimes my editors have questioned my judgment.  But each time I ask myself, is this something I would have wanted to know when I was that age?  or Were any of my friends ever worried about this topic?  Often I write about something that readers have confided to me, because I believe that if one person is worried about something in particular, it probably means others are also.  Thank you for writing to me.
