Review by PiLibrarian.
In this book, DJ learns to stand up against her family's expectations to do what's important to her. There are a lot of cow jokes because DJ spends all of her time on a dairy farm. All the characters really think about their lives and choices and some are brave enough to change. If you like funny books, or football, or how somebody can decide to follow her dreams, you'll like Dairy Queen.
