I wanted to thank you for writing the Alice series along with so many other books you wrote. I have been reading your books since I was in 4th grade, and even now that I’m in college I still love them! Whenever I read them, they aways make me laugh and help me forget or even understand some of the difficult situations I am going through.
In addition to the Alice books, I also wanted to thank you for the Alice column. Several years ago, I wrote to you about being in love with an older guy and not knowing what to do about it. The advice you gave me helped a lot, and I really appreciate your help 🙂
I need to remind readers occasionally that I’m not a doctor or a psychologist, just an enlightened grandmother, but I’m so glad that any suggestions I might have made to you were helpful. The decisions are always up to the reader, but I’ve found in my own life, it often helps to have a sounding board. Sometimes just writing or talking about your own problem gives you ideas for solving it yourself.
