Girlhood allies and friends:

Dear Beatles,
I had to write this letter because I couldn’t stand to keep my feelings inside myself any longer. you see I am an only child and sometimes it’s so very awful. When ever I get too lonely I just play one of your records and I feel good all over.
A lot of lonely kids feel like me.
Thanks for everything,
Janice R.
