Kelly,   :hug  ((Big Hugs)) to your daughter and her friend. In my story, her best friend suffers a brain injury so it's a little different, but so tough  when a best friend becomes sick!

Thanks everyone!  :love5:


Rachel, it's great to hear from you! Yes, this is the same book you read way back when....


Leanne, so glad to hear from another Skypony writer. Julie seems wonderful so far!


Shannon, thanks for telling me about the Fifteeners. So excited about joining the group! Right now, I'm feeling a bit clueless about the whole process. I'll look for you on the boards!
