Very similar to book one and still compelling. There is even more tough stuff in this one and DJ really grows up to have to deal with it. However, by the end I was read to wrap up the story and I was a little upset to learn there was a third book. I think this series would have worked better as a du...

Just as funny as [b:Dairy Queen|16178|Dairy Queen (Dairy Queen, #1)|Catherine Gilbert Murdock|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1386924703s/16178.jpg|564970], but some of the plot points were slightly unrealistic. Oh well.

I am so glad there was a sequel for Dairy Queen. I mean, it worked fine as a stand-alone novel, but I wasn't quite ready to let go of DJ Shwenk and her family and friends.As a sequel, The Off Season didn't disappoint. It moved me as Dairy Queen did - made me laugh and made me cry. Again, I was trans...

I loved it. It reminded me a little of Friday Night Lights, the TV show. I'm honestly surprised with The Off Season. I don't know but I think it's even better than the first book. Much more complex, dealing with more serious topics, the introduction of DJ's brothers was one of the best things of the...

In a way, this book is better than Dairy Queen. DJ is just amazing. One of the best heroines around. I just didn't enjoy this book as much as I did Dairy Queen, okay? And it's not because of that heartbreaking ending, I swear. I pretty much understand why it had to end like that. Off Season was heav...

Post-reading thoughts: I am such a bad read-along partner, sorry Keertana and Leanne. But this latest installment was just too good! The Off Season was a massive step up from Dairy Queen. I was a big fan of the first book Dairy Queen, but here Murdock just managed to take it a whole another notch, s...

Rating: 4.5 Stars I swear, this series just keeps getting better and better. The Off Season is an incredible follow-up to Dairy Queen and if I wasn't impressed by Murdock's first novel, she's definitely made a fan out of me now. I loved this one! It was realistic, strong, and moved me beyond words....

Hey D.J Schwenk can we be the best of friends?My love for D.J Schwenk goes on and on and on and this sequel to The Dairy Queen was one awesome awesome read! On this one, things get a bit out of hand for our mini-heroine. She suffered a not so good injury that she decided to stop playing football but...

I'm going to start off this review by saying I really enjoyed this book, but in my opinion it was not nearly as good as the first, and therefore I've rated it one less star. Many of the positive aspects of the first book were still true of this one. D.J. is still an awesome and relatable character...

3.5 Stars I closed this book feeling a bit like I'd been hit by a freight train. How was it even possible that 277 pages contained SO MUCH?To be honest for a moment it lost a bit of its realism with me, because it felt like there were too many bad things happening at once. Which I realized was a re...
