Adeline--I'm delighted you see some of Jane Austen in FAIREST. I would love to approach her wit and clarity. And I just reread PERSUASION!

I've loved your books for so many years. Way back when in middle school, I read the first few pages of Ella Enchanted for a public speaking contest (I wasn't great, haha, but some of the sentences are forever stuck in my head.) I admire how you write your female protagonists: they each have their own unique gifts and characters, and they learn to be strong in their own ways. Two Princesses of Bamarre is one of my favorite books of all time (and not just because the main character's name is so close to mine, haha.) There is so much I want to say, but I'm struggling to find the words.

I do have a question! Are you inspired by Jane Austen, or are any of your characters or stories inspired by her? When I reread Fairest recently, certain aspects of Aza really reminded me of some of the character traits of Fanny Price and Anne Elliot, and I can't quite figure out why.
Thank you!!

I am a HUGE fan of Ella Enchanted. ❤ I saw the movie first and fell in love with the story, such a wonderful twist on classic Cinderella (of whom I am also a huge fan!) Then I discovered the book and have read it countless times, especially the ending when the prince seeks Ella out from among the servants at her home.❤😭😍 I read Fairest recently and officially became a Gail Carson Levine fan! Your style is wonderful and truly takes the reader into the world you've created. Thank you for sharing your gift! I am excited to read more of your books and stories!

Dear Mrs. Levine,
I have enjoyed every book of yours that I have read. I love your style and the way each of your stories is so different. Dave at Night was just as well written and engaging as Ever, but the two books have competently different characters, plots, and worlds. I am so happy to have discovered your work. I am very inspired by you. I love fairy tales, and your versions of Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, Rapunzel and Snow White were captivating. You made the stories feel new and classic at the same time. I cannot wait to read A Ceiling Made of Eggshells. You are my favorite living author. Thank you for sharing your gifts.
P.S. My best friend, who dislikes almost all Fantasy/Fairy Tales, really enjoyed the two Princesses if Bamarre very much.

Dear Mrs. Levine,
I finished reading 'Ella Enchanted' as a book report a few days ago. Though it was a book report, I fell in love with it and just wished to say that you are an amazing author and that you should never stop writing!

One of Your Readers,
Yastika C.
