Life is looking up for DJ Schwenk. She's in eleventh grade, finally. After a rocky summer, she's reconnecting in a big way with her best friend, Amber. She's got kind of a thing going with Brian Nelson, who's cute and popular and smart but seems to like her anyway. And then there's the fact she's starting for the Red Bend High School football team – the first girl linebacker in northern Wisconsin, probably. Which just shows you can't predict the future. As autumn progresses, DJ struggles to understand Amber, Schwenk Farm, her relationship with Brian, and most of all her family. As a whole herd of trouble comes her way, she discovers she's a lot stronger than she – or anyone – ever thought.This hilarious, heartbreaking and triumphant sequel to the critically acclaimed Dairy Queen takes DJ and all the Schwenks from Labor Day to a Thanksgiving football game that you will never forget."I absolutely loved Dairy Queen. The book gave me an enormous amount of pleasure, and I am now missing every single character, including the dog. It was funny and sad and I adored it." (Jaclyn Moriarty)
