I enjoyed recent posts where Leila told stories from her life, such as a description of reaching out to a grieving stranger on the anniversary of 9/11. There are also posts about Leila's interests in movies, music, and more. People like me who grew up in the 1980s will likely enjoy her reflections on icons like John Hughes.
In addition to Virtual Big Sister, Leila has started another blog called The Letter Series, where readers can write and share "the letters you wish you could send... where you can be totally honest without revealing your true identity." She's getting some great submissions for this blog, and I can see it growing and more people find out about it.
I think we'll be seeing more from Leila, especially once she finds the perfect publisher for her YA series. I like her blogs, and I wish her luck!
