“Low and behold!”

Excerpt from the novel You Don’t Think She Is by Max Harrick Shenk

Author’s Note: This excerpt is a fictitious letter from 13-year-old Margo to her best friend Brian at summer camp, writing about an incident that took place during the school year when Margo and her best friend Christy went to a boys’ basketball playoff game at Fannett-Medal High School.

As stated in the preface to the Kindle edition of the story, I must issue this WARNING:

Please note that, in this epistolary text, spelling, grammar, punctuation and other errors have not been ignored, but have, in fact, been utilized intentionally to create a literary effect.

I was going to say that “the author is not an idiot,” but I will leave such conclusions to the reader.
