Waiting On Wednesday (1)

Right. First time doing this, so here it goes!

Front and Center by Catherine Murdock
publishing date: October 19, 2009

After five months of sheer absolute craziness I was going back to being plain old background D.J. In photographs of course I’m always in the background—it’s a family joke, actually, that us Schwenk kids could go to school naked on picture day, we’re all so crazy tall. But I mean I was returning to the background of life. Where no one would really notice me or talk about me or even talk to me much except to say things like “nice shot,” and I could just hang out without too many worries at all.

But, it turns out, other folks have big plans for D.J. 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 D.J. Schwenk can manage all this attention. No way at all. Not without a brain transplant. Not without breaking her heart.

Summary taken from Catherine Murdock's site.

I can't tell you how excited I am for this book. I LOVE DJ and all the characters. I recently reread Dairy Queen and am still amazed with it, and I now really want to reread The Off Season. So it's fitting that Front and Center is the first WoW here. :D

Oh, and one can read the first chapter of Front and Center at Catherine Murdock's site. :) So yay. October must come soon!


  1. It sounds like a really good book!
