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.

Hello from England!
I wanted to let you know that your book, Ella Enchanted, has made a child in my class so very happy. When Jenan told me her favourite story was Cinderella, and asked me for book recommendations, I knew she had to try your story. She is loving it! Every time I see her, she has her head in your book. She reads it at playtime, lunchtime and has told me she doesn't want to put the book down, even to go to sleep! She's so excited to finish it but at the same time doesn't want it to end. Fortunately, I now have a whole list of your other books to reccomend to her once she has finished!
Thank you from myself and Jenan

Gail Carson Levine,

Hello! It’s me again, Riley. I just recently wrote to you about another book of yours, Ella Enchanted. But just in case you don’t remember, my name is Riley, I am 12 years old, and a student in the seventh grade at Broadmoor Junior High School. This time, I read The Two Princesses of Bamarre. Just like Ella Enchanted, I really enjoyed this book. It was so exciting and interesting, and it kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the entire book. My favorite part was when Addie was held prisoner by Vollys. During this part I was always wondering about how Addie was going to escape, and what I would do if I were taken prisoner by a dragon like Vollys. I also was very surprised when Vollys told Addie that her mother was the same dragon fought by Drault. This part of the book also made me wonder what I would be like if I were a dragon. I can also really relate to Princess Addie. I am very crafty, and I love to make things, though I’ve never tried embroidery before. I am the oldest sibling in my family, so I don’t have a super brave or daring older sister like Meryl, but I do have three younger sisters who I play games with, and we do play pretend sometimes like Addie and Meryl did. But the biggest similarity I have with Addie is that I am also afraid of a lot of things ( Including spiders ), and I worry about every little thing. But, like Addie, I would also do anything to help and protect my family. Addie helped show me that you can be scared and brave, and this book has helped me through some of my fears and worries. You have truly inspired me to be brave with your writing, and I hope you continue to write and inspire.


Sincerely & dearly ,

Your inspired fan,

Riley.

Maria–Thank you, and thank you for sharing ELLA with your young cousin!

Jun–Thank you! I’d love to write a book about Drualt and Freya, but I haven’t figured out how to get around the sad ending.

Laura–Thank you! I have to remind myself when I’m writing that there’s no such thing as a perfect book!

Caitlin S.--I hope you do write about pigeons and doves! For making something longer, look for places that may jump around and see if you can fill in the gaps.

Sarah--Thank you!

Delia--Thank you, and good luck with your writing!

Gloria--Thank you for letting me know, youngster! I started graduate school in poetry a week before I turned sixty-five. I hope you continue to get and give pleasure with your writing.

Fatima--Thank you!
