Thanks to Mrs. Brooks Honors English II class for this question!  No suspense for you guys, though.  I feel this great question foreshadows top scores on your EOCs!

By the way, I know your teacher refers to this as DD, but when I hear DD, I always think Daredevil.  I guess that could be because I'm either way cool, or just a nerd.  Feel free to weigh in on the comments - cool or nerd
