hi Mrs Naylor I needed to thank you for writing Alice. Alice has helped me and many others realize that were not the only ones who get embarrassed and confused. Alice has answered questions that people thought could never be answered. When you first read Alice Alice isn't just a book shes your friend your trusted friend.You have done what is next to impossible in 28 years you have written 28 realistic and relatiable books you have helped 3rd graders and you have helped Seniors and everything in between. Phyllis replied: Thank you for your email. I'm really glad to know that Alice has helped you in your own life. I appreciate your writing to me.
