Following the Alice Books since 4th grade

Question:

I’ve been reading the Alice Series since I was 10 in the 4th grade and am now 16 and in 10th grade. As I have matured so has Alice and the problems she faces, and I know a lot of the things she worries about I have too. I have loved being able to grow up with these amazing characters you created and I see a little bit of myself in each of them. I consider Alice one of my biggest role models and just wanted to thank you for writing such a wonderful series of books, that are so true to what it’s like growing up. I look forward to every May when I know a know a new adventure of Alice’s will be waiting to be read. I have read every book in the series at least 3 times and have enjoyed them more each time I read them. I preorded Alice on Board in November and it’s expected to ship sometime this week- I’m so excited to read it! Though it saddens to think there are only two new books left to come out I’m so excited to see how you end Alice’s story and I find it fitting that I’ll be finishing this series, which has been such an important part of my childhood, just as I start preparing to leave for college and becoming more independent.
Thank you so much Mrs. Naylor, without these books I truly would have been a different person

It’s wonderful to know that there are so many readers who have followed Alice all these years.  I’m still revising the very last book that will appear, “Always Alice.”  It will be a much longer book than the others, and will come out in the fall of next year.
