about

Magic, cunning, and one very special cat join forces in this hilarious, extraordinary tale by the author of the Dairy Queen trilogy and Princess Ben. Princess Wisdom, known as Dizzy, longs for a life of adventure beyond the staid old
kingdom of Montagne.  Tips, a soldier, longs to keep his true identity a secret. Fortitude, an orphaned maid, longs only for Tips.

These three souls might possibly attain their dreams while preserving their empire from ruin — if only they can bear one another’s company long enough to come up with a plan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from more than just cows. it's about football too. "Dairy Queen" is a clever romantic comedy and coming of age story. Told in the first person by a tough tomboy - D.J. - whose football crazed family she is convinced is dysfunctional because they never talk. As her friend Brian says,"When you don’t talk, there’s a lot of stuff that ends up not getting said." Because her father is in the midst of a hip operation, and her older brothers are at college on football scholarships, 16 year-old D.J. is doing all the heavy lifting on her family's dairy farm. Quite literally. From haying to milking, D.J. is practically running the farm single-handedly while her mother juggles two jobs. And, then D.J. finds herself roped into training the rival football team's quarterback, Brian. When D.J. finally decides to stop being like the cows she milks twice a day, to stop doing what is expected of her, she rattles both her family, the town, and maybe even Brian. D.J. decides to try out for the boy's football team. Mind you, she's still keeping the dairy farm going, but she ends up doing it on her own terms. And, she gets to play football. And, as this is a romantic comedy, she might even get Brian. But, we don't get to know that. I guess there is a sequel. Quite a fun story, actually.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "I absolutely adored it!" This book was really quite amazing. It's about a 15-year-old farm girl who's suddenly handed the oppurtunity to train stuck-up, smart, sarcastic heart throb Brian Nelson. If i were to have a top 10 fav. book list, this one' d be on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Got milk? You don't? do yourself a favour and go straight to your local Indigo, Chapters or Coles and pick up this book (and it's sequel because you will want to read it as soon as you finish Dairy Queen). I couldn't believe how much I loved this book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I could not put it down! I loved this book and cannot wait to read the sequel - thanks to the sneak peek at the back of the book!!! DJ comes from a family where no one really talks about their feelings - or much of anything else for that matter. Her dad broke his hip so she has taken on the responsibility of the family dairy farm - milking twice a day, bringing in the hay, painting the barn. It's a lot of work. Then Brian shows up - the evil quarterback from the next high school. His coach said he should help out. Somehow DJ becomes his trainer. But then DJ ends up loving football - could she try out for the team? It is a little bit of Romeo and Juliet with cows. A bit of football thrown in. And high school angst. I simply loved it. Very clean - nothing to scare off Mom - appropriate for junior high and up. I loved it!!
