The only sport that D.J. will truly ever know is football, what with most of her family playing it and the cows having names like Joe Namath. The only life D.J. Schwenk is used to is the farm life. Now that her two oldest brothers are gone to college, and never seem to stay in contact with them, and her father having a bad hip, it¿s up to D.J. and her brother, Curtis, the one that hardly ever talks, to get things done. But this summer it looks like D.J. will be getting an extra hand from Brian Nelson, the football player from Hawley, the enemy school. Even though Brian is helping, he isn¿t very good at it. Let¿s just say his farm work is as bad as his football skills. But for some reason, everyone thinks he¿s the next greatest football player. What¿s worse is that D.J. is actually starting to like Brian, but he¿s the enemy and can hardly throw a ball. So what does D.J. do? Well, she starts to train Brian, since she would always have to help her brothers during football season, and maybe now Brian would see her as more than just a farm girl. That¿s not the only issue that D.J. has though her mother is working two jobs to support the family and it seems like she is keeping something from them. And D.J.¿s best friend isn't being so friendly anymore. And what about the idea that just so suddenly pops up into D.J.¿s mind, the one that says she should try out for the football team. Let¿s just hope that not everyone in her town will go crazy over this idea, especially her parents. But can she do it? DAIRY QUEEN is an extremely cute coming-of-age novel. It goes against all the clichés where girls are just not good at guy sports. And D.J. is the perfect heroine, showing that anyone can do anything if they just put their mind to it. A wonderful story that is far from ice-cream -- but it still fills your heart with joy! **Reviewed by: Randstostipher 'tallnlankyrn' Nguyen

    I Would NOT Recommend This

    This book is by far one of the worst books I've read. It seems to me that it was a recreation of Romeo and Juliet, except it wasn¿t between two feuding families who had forgotten why they hated each other in the first place, which was what made it tragic. No, instead, it¿s between the members of two rival football teams. Normally, I like adaptations of Shakespearian plays. But this had almost nothing in common except that two people liked each other. Their love was not the unfathomable love of Romeo and Juliet, who were so enamored of each other that they would rather be dead together than alive apart, but instead the trivial love of high-school sweethearts. True, it does display a lot of teen angst, which most teens love reading about, but to me it seemed very unrealistic. Especially during the ending where you find out something about Amber, that just didn¿t seem like it would happen in real life. It was also very slow, making it hard for me to read. Normally I can read books of that page number in an hour or less, but to actually absorb it all I had to take notes and re-read things, which I've never had to do before. There were a lot of grammatical errors that may slow down some readers as well. The details about where she lives and different things about her family, town and friends were given out in small spurts. Normally in books you have the first few chapters and you can practically see the town, but in this book, the first 2 chapters tell you very little about the town except the things that happen on the farm. Also, the book was based around boys. I know that the majority of girl teens can only think about boys, boys, boys, but it gets annoying when that happens in a book, too! When I picked this book up to do my summer reading for 8th grade this fall, I was expecting something completely different. It says that she learns to talk, but she¿s always known how to talk, she simply chose not to. Now, with all of this teenage angst of a so-called Romeo and Juliet romance, she decides to actually speak to people - however, deciding to speak because she thinks people might actually listen, and learning to speak are two completely different things. Even with all of this angst, she does not actually converse much more than a normal human - and certainly not more than a stereotypical teenager - however, her feelings are written in excruciating detail. The review from Publisher's weekly on the back of the book proclaims it a Romeo and Juliet. However, I don't believe Romeo would have fallen out of love with Juliet merely because she wished to try out for her school's football team.

    I hated this book. It was extremely boring and seemed not to go anywhere. I usually read books in about 2 weeks, but it took me about 6 weeks to read this book.I would DEFENITLY not recommend this book to anyone.
