Front and Center

Finished September 25
Front and Center by Catherine Gilbert Murdock

This is the third book in the series featuring Wisconsin farm girl and athlete DJ Schwenk. Basketball season has begun and DJ knows she will be expected to take a leadership role on the team, but doesn't feel comfortable speaking up when others are watching. She also knows that a scholarship for basketball is the only way she will get to go to college given her family's financial circumstances.
Her old brother Win has taken an interest in her basketball and college issues after she helped him move forward in his life. But she doesn't like the pressure on her and isn't sure she is cut out for a top basketball school.
This novel is about self confidence, knowing who you are and being able to tell others, and being a role model. DJ likes flying under the radar, but that isn't possible for her right now, and she has to learn how to deal with attention and being the leader her skills naturally take her to. This is about friendship and growing up, about standing up for yourself and about not selling yourself short.
