Well Said: The Secret of Joy


Also known for: See Jane Date
"I'll bet you like robots instead of princesses, like Rebecca. And I'll bet you love chasing after frogs in muddy creeks, like Rebecca. You're now at the age where you are likely wondering where your daddy is. I've never spoken to your mother since the phone call she made alerting me to your existence."
Context note: Rebecca is reading a letter written to her illegitimate half sister (by their father) on her sister's 5th birthday.

  17. Wow, I'm intrigued by that sentence.
    I really don't like the cover of that Alice in Wonderland book you have on your previous post, but maybe it is a bit more like the story. I prefer the Disney version.
