Continuing the story started in Murdock's Dairy Queen, this book sees DJ Schwenk starting the school year. Things with Brian are going well and they have a great time... when no one else is around. And football's going great, too, until DJ gets a shoulder injury that leaves her to choose between playing football or dropping football to heal her shoulder for basketball. And when DJ finds out that the family farm is losing money and that basketball might be her only chance to go to college, it doesn't seem like much of a choice. Everyone seems to be mad at her for letting her team down, and DJ doesn't have the words to explain to them why she had to... but then something happens that makes all those worries seem very small. And suddenly DJ's life is changed forever...

This is an excellent follow-up to Dairy Queen. It seemed to take up just where DQ left off and I was immediately drawn back into the story. DJ is a great, complex, loveable character and I didn't want her story to end! I laughed and cried with her and I'm really hoping there will be more to the story. These books are Highly Recommended!!
