First of all, if you've yet to read Dairy Queen and The Off Season by Catherine Gilbert Murdock, stop now, get thee to your local library, and read them. Ok, are you back? Now you're ready for Front and Center, which concludes DJ's story with her finding her voice and starting to figure out where and how she wants to be in the world. DJ is back playing basketball after a year off, and the town and the team are thrilled to have their star player again. But DJ doesn't want to be the center of attention, she just wants to play. When college scouts start trying to woo her with scholarships, she has a lot of hard thinking to do. She's also got some thinking to do about her love life. Beaner, her football buddy, is suddenly interested in being more than friends, but DJ just doesn't feel the spark with him that she felt with Brian. Beaner is fun, sure, but she can really talk to Brian. What's more important? Join DJ as she truly learns what it means to find your voice and make hard choices despite fear, with a great sense of humor all the way.
