Dear Elise,

“The Secret Order of The Gumm Street Girls” was honestly one of the best books I have ever read, and look forward the the next. The adventure with Pru, Franny, Ivy, Cat, Cha Cha and all the others were fantastic and it is the most unique, original book that I have read in a long time. I am so excited for the next book and can’t wait to buy it. I just want to say thank you for writing this book. I love to hear about Sherbet and can relate the characters to myself and others. I was so inspired by your writing that I just wanted to send out a comment.

Dear Meg,

I just happened to see your comment and wanted to thank you and tell you how happy it makes me to hear that someone has enjoyed “Gumm Street!

“Gumm Street” is my first novel and was three years in the making. During this time I had many emotional unheavals and working on the book was a place I escaped to every day — I don’t know what I would have done without it.

Thank you so much for letting me know that you enjoyed it — it means a lot!

Warm regards,

Elise Primavera

Dear, Elise

The moment I started reading the secret order of the Gumm street girls I couldn’t put it down! It’s one of my favorite books and I haven’t even finished it yet. I really hope that the sequel comes out as soon as possible. You have a vivid imagination, I have one as well, except mine usually has to do with butts… Anyways thanks so much for writing the book! I can’t wait to continue reading it I’m a big fan 🙂
