Front and Center by Catherine Gilbert Murdock

After five months of sheer absolute craziness I was going back to being plain old background D.J. In photographs of course I’m always in the background . . .

But it turns out other folks have big plans for D.J. Like her coach. College scouts. All the town hoops fans. A certain Red Bend High School junior who’s keen for romance and karaoke. Not to mention Brian Nelson, who she should not be thinking about! Who she is done with, thank you very much. But who keeps showing up anyway . . .

Readers first fell in love with straight-talking D. J. Schwenk in Dairy Queen; they followed her ups and downs both on and off the court in The Off Season. Now D. J.steps out from behind the free-throw line in this final installment of the Dairy Queen trilogy (

This is the last book in the Dairy Queen trilogy and it was great! Like The Off Season, this book was not as good as the Dairy Queen but still great. I am going to miss D.J.

I was really happy with the ending. The last few lines can make you cry if you're not careful. This is definitely a feel good book, though.

Is anyone else really happy for D.J.? D.J. is definitely not a cow (you'd have to read the series to know what this means). She's going to have a great time in college. Who knows what will happen with her and Brian, though, because of the whole college thing.

Not much else to say other than you should read this series because it's really good! I am going to check out Murdock's other books because I loved her writing.

Overall: 5/5
