ok, is it too weird that I’m a fan of your books and I’m a 47 year old woman? My daughter bought your book at a book fair in her elementary school. I happened to read the first couple of pages ,and I got hooked. It completely brought me back to my childhood days. Now, I am going to build my library with all Ms. Frederick’s books. I’m also really hoping to set an example for my daughter (9 yrs old) who is not a fan of reading – ashamed to say. You’re a great author as well Ms. Frederick.
