Recommended for: Just about anybody. Not just for YA readers.
Read in April, 2008

I absolutely loved this book. DJ is a completely unique, strong, vulnerable character with a distinct voice. The secondary characters, particularly her brother and her father, are so well done. I thought the book was going to be about football--kind of an "issue" book, but it was really about family, and about DJ learning to value who she is.

Recently I've met a lot of booksellers and librarians, and whenever I bring up this book we have a love fest talking about it. Just about my favorite book from last year.

*note that I only review and rate books that I can give five stars. Not many!
