Front and Center
By Catherine Gilbert Murdock
Houghton Mifflin, 2009. 256 pgs. Young Adult
D.J. just wants to blend back into the background; she doesn’t want to be the center of attention anymore. This is proving hard to do though as colleges start noticing her basketball abilities and as a boy in school is flirting with her in front of everyone. As the pressure mounts for her to pick a college and her heart tells her to talk to Brian, D.J. is feeling more and more out of sorts.
Fans of the Dairy Queen series will want to read this latest book about D.J. It’s been a while since I have read the last one, but it felt good to be reading about D.J.’s problems again in her realistic teen voice.
