I'm so happy how D.J.'s storyline finished. Her and Win killed me last book and their bond really showed. It concluded with something about their relationship which I loved. I also enjoyed all the talk about basketball although I did miss her playing football so much. Her fears about college were my fears. D.J. has been one of my favorite characters ever. I find her so inspiring and it's sad to say goodbye. ( )

Book Three of “The Dairy Queen” series picks up shortly after the end of the second book in this trilogy. D.J. (for Darlene Joyce) Schwenk, 16 now, is six feet tall, athletic, funny, and the charming narrator of this trilogy about her “coming of age” in Red Bend, Wisconsin. D.J. was playing football for her high school for a while, but had to give it up after an injury; now she is concentrating on becoming a better basketball player so she can get a scholarship to college. She also remains fixated on Brian Nelson, the quarterback of Red Bend’s main rival, Hawley, and someone who seemed to like her, but only when his friends couldn’t see he was with her instead of someone “cooler.” She decides she deserves better.

She starts going out with a boy she has always considered a friend, “Beaner” Halstaad, but she just doesn’t feel that “spark” she felt with Brian. And of course, that’s not her only problem. In order to excel at basketball, she has to exhibit leadership skills, which means speaking out and being assertive, something the shy D.J. has always avoided. In fact, the very idea frightens her enough that she wants to avoid the better teams of Division I of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), just so she can stay in the background.

D.J. has to figure out if she can overcome her fears to become all that she can be, and decide on the best way to deal with her conflicted feelings about the boys in her life. Those of us who have been following D.J.’s progress since Book One of this appealing series know she will figure out a way; the fun is going through the process with her.

Evaluation: Book Three of this charming coming-of-age series is mostly wrapping up the issues presented in the previous books. But overall, this series has a lot of positive aspects and is full of humor. The protagonist is comfortable with her “non-size zero” body and learns to capitalize on her other assets at well. I strongly recommend this series for girls who don’t fit into the usual mold of “the popular set” in high school. ( )

A fitting and very satisfying conclusion to the DJ series! What a wonderful character!
  devafagan | Jan 2, 2015 |
There seems to be curse among YA authors who do trilogies. After a fantastic 2 and a half books, with characters you know and love, that critical ending that has to be perfect to satisfy you and give you enough closure - and it sucks. It's disappointing and it almost ruins the whole thing for you (see the Delirium trilogy by Lauren Oliver or The Wolves Of Mercy Falls trilogy by Maggie Stiefvater and you'll know what I'm talking about). So, as you can expect, I was a little worried about opening up Front and Center and see how it all ends for DJ.

I did not have that problem with Front and Center. I loved the story, and I loved the ending - how it was not about Brian or Beaner or boys, it was about DJ and Win and her realisation that she saved his life and he helped hers and oh God I just cried. It was a beautiful ending, and a beautiful story, and as a reader I felt closure for the trilogy but I would also welcome another book (Murdock hinted at a book about DJ's freshman year of college but not for a while yet).

I'm going to miss DJ!

Should this be under spoilers? Oh well, too bad. ( )

You know what? I think this one is my favorite of the trilogy. Only with Front and Center does D.J. really come of age. She does her growing up and embraces herself and generally comes to recognize her own awesomeness. Murdock continues to tackle tough issues in a real life way, and again focuses on parts of life you don’t see too much in young adult fiction.

Read the A Reader of Fictions. ( )
