We hope everyone is settling back to school after the holiday break, and discovering lots of new books! Meli continues to receive wonderful letters from her fans. She is always so impressed with how well the letters are written, and she enjoys looking on a map to see where her fans are from. If you can find Massachusetts on a map, you will see where Meli lives!
