** spoiler alert ** The Off Season is the sequel to Dairy Queen and it is soo good! This one starts out about 3 days after Dairy Queen leaves off, after the big game DJ played. The off season is about part of D.J.'s Junior year in high school and her decision between playing basketball and football, going to college, dating Brian... Brian and D.J. start off the same as they left off, liking each other. Brian even takes her shopping in another city and buys her things and holds her hand and then on the way home they kiss for the first time, and D.J.'s narration/description of this kiss is quite hilarious! It ends up, however, that Brian acts pretty stupidly around his friends still when it comes to D.J. and then theres the incident with People Magazine and the turkey farmers. Also, in the middle of the football season that D.J. was so enjoying, she gets tackled and hurts her shoulder and is forced to decide between quitting football to save her arm for Basketball, or possibly not being able to play basketball which would be her only way into college- a basketball scholarship. The other HUGE event that piles stress on top of D.J.'s life, is during her brother Wins football game that the family was all gathered to watch, Win gets face masked illegally and breaks his neck! D.J. ends up being the one to be with Win and helping him through his misery. D.J. and her family also learn a lot more about Curtis, her little brother, and his academic abilities. This sequel was great and I cant wait to hear more from D.J. Schwenk! 277 pages. 2nd of 3 Dairy Queen books.
