Bess says Alice grabs every issue before her mom can get a hold of it. She also knows every lyric to the musical Hamilton. As her tweets of the captions went viral, Bess used the opportunity to plead for teachers, parents and friends to encourage and nurture creative writing in young girls, providing a long string of thoughts on why. To read the rant, scroll up from this tweet.
