Front and Center
Audience: 8th Grade - 8th Grade
DJ is a star basketball player starting her junior year at Red Bend high school. She was on the football team as well as the basketball team in junior high. In every group picture that is taken, she is in the back row, where she wants to be, because she is so tall. Front and Center is the third book in the Dairy Queen trilogy. Win, DJ's older brother, feels DJ has the ability to play Division I basketball (which she denies) and encourages (demands) her to apply to Big Ten schools. DJ rejects being a leader with her high school team and gets sick to her stomach when she thinks college scouts are watching her. There is also a love story within the basketball story. Two classmates, Brian and Beamer, are vying for her attention. Read this adorable story with its great and hilarious characters and easy to follow story line. Does Beamer or Brian win out? Does she choose to verbally accept a scholarship from a Big Ten school or a small school near home?
