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

After being burned MANY times by crap YA books I made a decision to only read those that at some point earned critical recognition if I judged books by GR reviewer s ratings I suspect I would have to work my way through nonsense like Hush Hush Ever and The Luxe and I am not sure I am up for it any Dairy ueen made it to ALA s list of best YA books in 2007 so I decided to give it a try in spite of the awful cover and title I was not disappointed15 year old DJ is forced to take over the lion s share of work on her family s small dairy farm after her father is injured She is overwhelmed by milking cleaning out the barn mowing and haying with almost no help but her younger brother s In fact she is so overwhelmed that she doesn t realize that her life at the moment has no direction or point This is pointed to her by a lazy and arrogant Brian the rival high school s uarterback who is sent to DJ s farm to help her out learn work ethics and get some football training Strangely enough Brian has something to teach DJ too to look at her life style closer to do some soul searching to become a better communicatorI can t say that Dairy ueen is a mind blowing kind of book It s not really edgy or a dark issue book And that s a good thing This is a novel about balancing family responsibilities and personal desires about what it is to be a good person and about importance of open communication in a family DJ is a very likable narrator self deprecating hard working honest She along with the rest of the characters feels very real and relatable The teen romance is very well done too It is realistic doesn t overwhelm the story and never becomes cheesy or sappy which is very important to me I will undoubtedly read the next book in this 3 part series

I never thought I d have fun reading about a belching contest of all things but that s exactly what happened Murdock s Dairy ueen is just the kind of YA I can truly enjoy loads of fun on the surface yet if you remember to look a little deeper for the most part it s not funny at all I noticed a long time ago that authors often have problems with creating characters that are uite average On one side most of them don t even want to because they re convinced that nobody likes to read about average people On the other even when they try they usually don t know how Sometimes you can just see that s what the author intended to do especially in YA but the characters end up being either too smart or too stupid to live thus remaining completely unrealistic and two dimensional That is not the case with Catherine Murdock In my opinion she was successful DJ always does the right thing for herself but that doesn t mean that she s too smart She s not very pretty or very social either But Murdock knows how to make you care for her and see her in a completely different light The thing I liked most about DJ is that she never once made me feel frustrated or angry because I always knew that she was doing her best even when it wasn t enough Stylistically speaking at first glance the writing was a little strange I was bothered by it at first but then I started discovering things about DJ and I realized that it needed to be adapted to the narrator DJ flunked her English class because she was too busy working on the family farm All those awkward sentences kind of like mine but worse and words that kept repeating again and again made things sound authentic In other words once I realized that Murdock did it on purpose and it DID take me a while I liked it Phew Let me tell you flirting is never easy but having any sort of romantic conversation while shoveling cow poop is next to impossible And yet DJ and Brian managed to do it and it was awkward adorable and everything else it was supposed to be I loved the two of them together and I loved that the focus wasn t on the romance at all I can t wait to read the next two books
