Description

Life is looking up for D.J. Schwenk. SheÂs in eleventh grade, finally. After a rocky summer, sheÂs reconnecting in a big way with her best friend, Amber. SheÂs got kind of a thing going with Brian Nelson, whoÂs cute and popular and smart but seems to like her anyway. And then thereÂs the fact sheÂs starting for the Red Bend High School football teamÂthe first girl linebacker in northern Wisconsin, probably. Which just shows you canÂt predict the future. As autumn progresses, D.J. struggles to understand Amber, Schwenk Farm, her relationship with Brian, and most of all her family. As a whole herd of trouble comes her way, she discovers sheÂs a lot stronger than sheÂor anyoneÂever thought.
This hilarious, heartbreaking and triumphant sequel to the critically acclaimed Dairy Queen takes D.J. and all the Schwenks from Labor Day to a Thanksgiving football game that you will never forget.

Review quote

"D.J.'s self-deprecating, down-to-earth voice will draw readers in, even if they have yet to read 'Dairy Queen'." Minn. StarTribune 7/29/07
