Review: Dairy Queen

Book: "Dairy Queen"
Author: Catherine Gilbert Murdock
Pages: 274
Rating: 4 out of 5
Cover Rating: 4 out of 5

D.J has decided that she is like a cow. She does everything her parents tell her, milk the cows, bring in the hay, do the rest of the chores, actually, she does everything that pretty much anyone tells her to do! However, when popular jock Brian who is on Hawley's foot ball team is sent over to D.J.'s family farm to learn how to really "work", things start changing. D.J starts training Brian and soon enough, they become close friends. And, things get even better when D.J comes up with the perfect plan to show herself that she really is not like a cow! However, will her plans turn out like she had hoped? Or will dig herself into a deeper hole?

"Dairy Queen" was such a great book! I loved it! It was quirky, funny, cute, and sweet! It had a lot about football in it, and I don't know much about football, but yet I still liked it! D.J and Brian's characters were well developed throughout the story, and it had a great plot! I did find that her parents, especially her Dad, were really frustrating at times. "Dairy Queen" makes a great, light, summer read. I really enjoyed reading "Dairy Queen" and am reading "Off Season", the sequel, right now! I hope that you like it as much as I did!
