Dairy Queen - a chick book? jock book? chock book.

In my quest to read as much as possible over my extended break, this is book one. As this is my first day off, I'm doing pretty well. At this rate, I can read 240 books by August 14th.

Dairy Queen by Catherine Gilbert Murdock is the story of DJ Schwenk, a small town farm girl. I'm not sure if this is a book for girls or a book for boys, so I guess that makes it a book for everyone.

It is the kind of book that I love because it is a well-written story about the real problems that real people have. I would classify it as a girl's book because there is a romance and a much of the book deals with DJ learning to be happy with who she is. On the other hand, the rest of the book is about football, sports, and family angst - certainly issues that would appeal to boys as well.

In the end, I think Dairy Queen is for anyone who has ever had doubts, ever questioned who they were, ever wondered what life was about, and who ever wanted to tell their parents to shove it.
