The book that I recently read was about a teenage girl, D.J. Schwenck. D.J. has been doing all of the work on her family’s farm ever since her dad broke his hip. It’s all she ever has time for, until the Hawley football coach, Jimmy Ott, sends his star Q.B, Brian, over for D.J. to train. At first she thinks it’s never going to work and she sees it more as a chore than anything else. Until, that is, that she gets the idea of playing football herself at Red Bend, (her high school). Only the bad thing is when preseason starts, she has to face Brian, who didn’t have a clue that while she had been training him, she was also training herself. In the end Red Bend finally beats Hawley, because D.J. was on the team. Things between Brian and D.J. seem to settle out, which makes everything a little better, and not to mention that D.J.’s dad’s hip heals letting him help out more around the farm.

My favorite part of this book is when D.J. scores a touchdown after intercepting it, and this all being in her first game. This is my favorite part for two main reasons. One is because it goes to show that some girls can play just as well as any guy, and the other is that it was very exciting.

On a scale of 1-5, and 5 being the best, I would most definitely give this book a 5. I loved it! The characters, and the plot were great, and it kept my attention the whole time. If the author comes out with another novel there is no doubt that I would read it.
