D. J. Schwenk has made it to eleventh grade and become the first female linebacker in northern Wisconsin. But when the season goes suddenly, horribly wrong, she’ll have to dig deeper than she’s ever had to before.
Catherine Murdock grew up on a small farm in Connecticut, where she wisely avoided all sports involving hand-eye coordination. She now lives in suburban Philadelphia with her husband, two brilliant unicycling children, several cats, and a one-acre yard that she is slowly transforming into a wee but flourishing ecosystem. She is the author of several books, including the popular Dairy Queen series starring lovable heroine D. J. Schwenk, the fantasy novel Princess Ben, and Front and Center.
"The main character is likable [She] has qualities uniquely her own...readers can relate to, sympathize with and ultimately admire.” Starred KLIATT
