Hi Mrs. Murdock. My name is Megan and I’m 13 years old. I am a loyal D.J. fan! I love Dairy Queen and The Off Season SOOOOOO much! They are by far my favorite books of all time. I’m not much of a reader but I was absorbed by these books. In a way I am kind of like D.J. because I play baseball with the guys, I’m not into softball, so sometimes I can relate to what she’s going through . . . I can’t wait to read your new book! It’s so exciting!!! I’m going to get it the first day!
