Starred Review

This book was a lovely end to the Dairy Queen trilogy. I was disappointed the library didn't have this one on CD, but that was a cool excuse to purchase the book at get it signed by Catherine Gilbert Murdock when I got to hear her speak.

DJ's back to school, and hopes to just melt into the woodwork, but she finds herself the center of attention. She's trying to figure out where to go to college, trying to improve her basketball game, and trying to forget Brian Nelson. But then Brian starts acting differently, actually willing to be seen with her, while her good friend Beaner wants something more than friendship. DJ's got life and college and romance to figure out, and it all makes a lovely conclusion to the trilogy.

I don't really need to say a lot about this book, because those who have come through the first two books with DJ will definitely want to know what happens next. I promise you'll enjoy the final installment!
