(a DJ Schwenk book)
After five months of sheer absolute craziness I was going back to being plain old background D.J. In photographs of course I’m always in the background . . .
But it turns out other folks have big plans for D.J. Like her coach. College scouts. All the town hoops fans. A certain Red Bend High School junior who’s keen for romance and karaoke. Not to mention Brian Nelson, who she should not be thinking about! Who she is done with, thank you very much. But who keeps showing up anyway . . .
If you couldn't tell already, I'm kind of in love with DJ Schwenk, in a non-romantic way. More as in, if I were a farmgirl living in the Midwest, DJ is who I'd want to be. So that's why I'm thrilled that--yay!--DJ's coming back! And we'll be able to read more about her and her family and the farm and Brian Nelson and football and more. Sweet. I can't wait!
Front and Center will be released by Houghton Mifflin in hardcover on October 19, 2009.
