Murdock, Catherine Gilbert Front and Center, 256 p. Houghton Mifflin, 2009. Content: G. DJ Schwenk has gone from small-town basketball player, cum footballer, into a Division I basketball prospect. But DJ has a lot on her shoulders – the hopes of her paralyzed brother Win; the heartache of her failed romance with Brian, a rival football player; and a new romance with Beaner, a long time friend. DJ’s not sure that she’s ready for primetime and going on college visits doesn’t assuage her fears. I haven’t read the first two books in this series, but I had no problem falling in love with DJ, her family and her friends. MS, HS – ADVISABLE. Cindy, Library-Teacher.
