I never met Paula Danziger face to face, but she touched my daughter and me with her books. I am especially grateful for “P.S. Longer Letter Later” and “Snail Mail No More” because they turned my daughter on to young adult fiction at a time when most everything else that was recommended was beneath her reading level. So imagine my glee when I received an email from Ms. Danziger, and learned that she was a subscriber to my newsletter and a fan! When I didn’t get a response to my reply, I thought perhaps I said something rude, but then I learned she suffered a heart attack just days after our correspondence. Although Ms. Danziger is gone, her characters, such as the spunky Amber Brown and the exuberant Tara*Starr, will live on.
