Waiting on Wednesday


Front and Center by Catherine Gilbert Murdock
Coming out October 19, 2009

   DJ Schwenk thinks that, after five months of sheer craziness, she's finally going back to being "plain old background DJ". But, it turns out, other folks have big plans for DJ. Like her coach. College scouts. All the town hoops fans. A certain Red Bend High School junior who's keen for romance and karaoke. Not to mention Brian Nelson, who she should not be thinking about! Who she is DONE WITH, thank you very much. But who keeps showing up anyway...
   What's going to happen if she lets these people down? What's going to happen when she does? Because let's face it: there's no way, on court or off, that awkward, tongue-tied DJ Schwenk can manage all this attention. No way at all. Not without a brain transplant. Not without breaking her heart.

   For those who haven't read the previous books in the series, Dairy Queen and The Off Season, this summary might be kind of vague, but having read both, I'm totally looking forward to Front and Center! I recently read the author's Princess Ben, not part of the series, and adored it--part of my top 3 of 2008--and I really love Ms. Murdock's writing, so I am counting down the days before it comes out! (: What are you guys waiting on this Wednesday?

This book looks really good. I have not read any of the other books that this author has penned, but now I am looking forward to it.
