Dairy ueen

P not getting saidHarsh words indeed from Brian Nelson of. That s one advantage to not talking After a while people stop talking back I swear I swear to youI am not a snob Really Swear But come onlook at this cover It s a cow In a tiara With a blue sky in the background and named after a restaurant I love What s a girl to think when she sees this Oh well guess it s a moot point Because this book was fabulous okay I was guna use that GIF anyway because duh friends but it just worked out so well Basically what it came down to was that my life sucked It sucked even than it had before Brian showed up because now I knew it This book while funny and outwardly mocking in and of itself was also surprisingly deep full of values that aren t always put first in a teenager s life DJ s voice is one that while a little different at first is one that I think many young girls could relate to Hell I could relate to it Think about it No I m not a farmer and no I wasn t totally socially awkward ever but I had trouble finding my voice And not everyone runs into this problem I know that But hey I grew up in the country and I went to a school where driving your tractor there wouldn t raise eyebrows It was Hick City people The kids were very kind very well brought up for a public school so it should come as no shock to you that when my parents ripped me out of that happy and horrible academically wise school away from all my friends just as I was getting my braces and figuring out who I was thanks mom and dad really I had trouble finding my place at the elite schools in town I bet you re asking why they pulled me out I ll tell you why in a few words Soccer program as in ours was nonexistent and I was REALLY GOOD and academics I couldn t go into high school without a better level of academics and not knowing the in town program and it s people and coaches ANYWAY I hate it when people make fun of me and it turns out they re right So when I started in town at a tiny private school with a totally different grading scale and girls that were far advanced than I in 7th grade I found that I was standing on the outside of the circle with very little to say besides a literal smile and nod of the head for everything they deemed important Ah youth I want to incinerate some of those moments But that s my whole point I knew what I wanted to say and I rarely agreed with what they were going on and on about I had my own opinions but I was both too shy and too backwards at the time to express themso I just looked wild eyed at them and nodded my head so as to fit in Yeah That worked out great But again the point I am just like DJ in this instanceand I think many young girls are as well How could a guy who was such a jerk how could he act so nice And that s why I loved this cute little story so much Yeah the writing was great and the boy was great Brian and it was so so funnybut I fell for DJ She s this girl who thinks so little of herself yet she s so very strong and smart and determined She has trouble expressing herself even though she has so much to say And I loved that I loved her voice and her thoughtful sentences and the way she spoke to you as if you were a friend It was a journey of discovering herself and finding out that not everybody is what you d imagine them to be Andmost importantly this chick tries out for football And then she falls for the rival team s uarterback Be still my star crossed heart I couldn t help wondering if maybe it had something to do with me like our water fight and all But then I realized that I was totally stupid and there s no way it could ever be about me not in a million years not if I was the only girl on the entire planet Now I know what you re thinking What a weird concept I know I thought so too But when she decides to try out for football it actually became my favorite partbecause you know she has to play that rival football team MUAHA lol I m weird today Anyway She decides to train Brian all summer after some prompting from a family friend because she trained with her brothers who are now big names in college football What starts out as reluctant training and working together on the farm becomes a highlight of each of their weeks and something so much The whole book DJ is trying to prove her worth to herself that she s not just some cow that does what everybody says and when she finally finds a purpose playing football for her school s team it helps her to feel vindicated and strong and worthy of people s admiration I think that s where my admiration came in for herwhat a brave and hilarious thing to do I saw something I wanted to do and I decided to do it The feeling of freedom this gave me I can t even describe it It was my decision I chose it I am not a cow So you know despite my earlier trepidation of how this story would be I got just as many feels from this as any other book Angst fear butterflies sadness giddiness family issues this book had it all Near the end my stomach was in such a big bundle of nerves I almost couldn t sleep And I guess that s my other life lessonyou can t judge a book by it s cover Sometimes you find the best stories with the worst coversit just happens But I m sure I ll continue to make that mistakebut I ll do my best to shake the habit For of my reviews please visit Surprisingly deep with wonderful valuesI can t wait to read of this seriesAnd you know Just sayin RTC

All people But D J can’t help admitting maybe he’s rig. Dairy ueen has got to be the best book hidden behind the worst covertitle ever This isn t a book I would have given a second glance at if it weren t for so many Goodreads friends raving over it Even looking past the cover the synopsis here doesn t sound great One special summer in which our young protagonist DJ Schwenk spends time with a guy who is out of her league figures out some family issues and goes out for the boys football team This has the potential to be uirky in an oh so annoying way But it isn t Not at all And I am kicking myself for not reading this book sooner than nowTo start with DJ is refreshing and a pleasure to read about Author Catherine Gilbert Murdock writes DJ in the Sookie Stackhouse style That is she just happily rambles about her day her thoughts and feelings on just about everything in such a friendly conversational manner that before you know it you are completely hooked Unlike Sookie though DJ is figuring out her purpose and goals in life Also this series will not be than a trilogy so we know her blathering will have a point and eventually lead us to hopefully a satisfying conclusion DJ is every bit the tomboy who lives and works on a dairy farm is athletic and much like any boy is very uncomfortable experiencing and expressing emotions We get to meet her family who are just as tough strong sensitive and emotionally unenlightened as DJ is Of course YA covers are misleading but I still think it s odd for this book to have such a weird whimsical cover when there really isn t anything weird or whimsical about DJ Dairy ueen is simply one of those books which gets so many things right it s hard to articulate what makes it so special I love that DJ follows her desires not in an effort to prove a point or impress someone or rebel She merely attempts to figure out what she wants in life and endeavors to follow her dreams There is a great message in this novel of being true to yourself And did I mention this book is also about football Lots and lots of football oh yeah Murdock does a fantastic job of describing the sport but it s clear that she really isn t a fan when she mentions DJ s old brotherfootball hero Bill attending Minnesota Yeah it s cool he s playing for a NCAA team and all but really Minnesota Just about the worst team in the Big Ten I could understand if the book was based in Minnesota or Murdock had special ties to that school who knows maybe she does But Dairy ueen takes place in Wisconsin which has a perfectly respectable state university and football team of their own A team that is so good I always have a tight knot of anxiety in my stomach when my beloved Buckeyes play them Ah well Besides being proud of her brother for attending Minnesota because for fucks sake they are terrible Dairy ueen is a flawless and enjoyable book It is definitely one I recommend even for people who are not football fans Really the sports stuff isn t so overwhelming for those of you who just aren t into it For the rest of us it s got just enough to make you count down the days till kickoff That is if you aren t already UPDATE This series rocks Just finished the final installment Front and Center and loved it Going back to rate each book in this trilogy 5 stars 82211

Summary ì eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ✓ Catherine Gilbert Murdock

When you don’t talk there’s a lot of stuff that ends u. A very cute story about a 15 turning 16 year old girl named DJ who has only ever known life in her dad s farm She s responsible does what everyone expects of her obedient and hardworking Not much different from the cows she milks every day And that s what put me to sleep Thinking about cows or elephant poops LMAOOne day she decides she doesn t want to be a cow any and I mean this in a completely metaphorically way so chill and that s where the plot becomes really interesting Written in a very candid and genuine manner in the POV of DJ herself as a journal for her English reuirement to redeem her flunked grade the story I think is very genuine and the voice of the narrative truly sounded as if it s written by a young farm girl and this is probably what made the entire story simply adorable It s also heartwarming and inspiring As Uncle Walt Whitman once said Simplicity is the glory of expression

    I like seeing girls play sports in books but this was really dull and maddening The way the heroine was exploited made me sick to my stomach It probably gets better but it was too repetitive and frustrating for me to finish
