Hi Gail!
I just bought Ella Enchanted and read it immediately. And, no, Lucinda did not influence anyone to order me to do so. Wonderful book! I loved it. I'm not sure how many 72 year old men would cry at the book's end, but I did! I'm also not sure how many others from Mrs. Hazel's 9SP class at JHS 143 have read Ella Enchanted (maybe Claudia Deutsch).
love,
Barry

What do you use and how did you create your blog? I want to blog to teach people as well, but I don't know how to. I have a Web design class, but the teacher uses outdated software.

Thank you so much for your amazing contribution to the writing world. Growing up, I watched a lot of TV based around fractured fairy tales. I liked the initial idea of most of them, but didn't enjoy some of the more... immature jokes aimed at younger audience members. My sister shares the name of one of your heroines, so I decided to read one of your books based on that. Boy, am I glad I did. It taught me that not all princess stories were the same, and this one in particular was funny and plucky and intelligent. They made a movie version, but they took the same liberties they had with all the other adaptions. Ever since I read that book though, you've been one of my favorite authors. Thank you thank you thank you for a new take on fractured fairy tales with funny,interesting leads, fully developed backing characters, and your amazing take on the fairy tale world.

I've just recently started reading your book, Writer to Writer. I think it is a wonderful book, so far, and that you are very talented.

Dear ms. Lavine, I am writing because I am rereading(for the fourth time) your book The Two Princesses of Bamarre. It holds a part of my heart always. I first read the book when I was sixteen and my sister, Rachael, was going through treatment’s for A.L.L. leukemia. Your tale of two sisters struck me, and shook me to the core as I dealt with terrible monsters of my own; loneliness, depression, anxiety, poor health, abusive family members, suicidal thoughts, and self abuse. The book brought me to tears, the same feeling of unfairness, that it was my sister going through the illness and not me, was shared between me and Addie, and gave me hope for a future-perhaps one I never thought possible. There were no wizards to save me, but like Addie, I learned how to save myself. Your book gave me the ability to keep going, even when I thought all was lost. It taught me “step follows step, hope follows courage.”
While I am now 22, I still pick up the book from time to time, and read parts of the Drault or random places in the book. When my sister was done with Cancer treatments, she and I were both different people, we were no longer the sisters that had stepped into that adventure four years earlier. I am happy to say, my sister is happily recovered, graduated collage, and teaching at an international school in Jakarta Indonesia, I am currently planning on an adventure of my own, going away to bible school to finally get the degree I have wanted ever since before my sister was sick. Thank you for touching my life, thank you for your writing. You change lives with your stories, I know because you changed mine.
Sincerely yours, A coward turned brave.
