14. Dairy Queen (Catherine Gilbert Murdock)

Post  Ren on Tue Dec 29, 2009 3:26 am

"D. J.'s family members don't talk much, especially about the fact that 15-year-old D. J. does all the heavy work on their Wisconsin dairy farm since her father broke his hip and her two older brothers left for college. Nor do they talk about why D. J.'s mom, a teacher, is so busy filling in for the middle-school principal that she's never home. And they never, ever discuss the reason why her brothers haven't called home for more than six months. So when D. J. decides to try out for the Red Bend football team, even though she's been secretly training (and falling for) Brian Nelson, the cute quarterback from Hawley, Red Bend's rival, she becomes the talk of the town. Suddenly, her family has quite a bit to say." Copyright ©️ American Library Association.

Finished on June 20, 2009
Also for book group..... the book falls in the Young Adult category.. but was a fun summer read for the group, especially, again, since it is based in WI.

The author's sibling is Elizabeth Gilbert author of Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia and The Last American Man.
