However, it gets even worse when her brother, Will, is injured badly in a football accident and ends up in the hospital. Will D.J.'s life start looking up again? Will Will's injury get better? Or will her life keep getting a little bit darker day by day?
"The Off Season" is the exciting sequel to Catherine Gilberts "Dairy Queen." I love how realistic D.J. is and how her character is so easy to relate to. Like "Dairy Queen", the book keeps you on your toes with exciting twists and turns that are unexpected. The way the story is written makes the reader feel like she really knows D.J. Overall, "The Off Season" was a great, light, novel that, like "Dairy Queen", would make a great summer read!
I am constantly inspired by little things, the way ocean waves move, the change of emotion in horses eyes, a leaf blowing across the ground, colors of the prettiest shades, I love to find inspiration in everything! I am the proud Momma of two horses, Bailee and Figment and will be showing in junior Hunter jumping with Figment come next Summer! I hope you enjoy my blog and stop by again!
I would love to review your books! If you have a young adult book that you would like me to review, and post on my blog, feel free to send it! Please let me know if you are interested!
I am interested in YA books of almost all genres. If I happen to receive a book that I end up not liking (which I have to see isn't often), I will post a review on my blog and will either have a giveaway for it on my blog or donate it to my local library, otherwise I will save it to read again in the future when I might like it better.
