Questions on Front and Center

•  At the end of Chapter One, D.J. declares that “front and center sucks.”  What does she mean, exactly? How does this sentiment fit into the book as a whole?

•  What’s the biggest challenge D.J. faces in Front and Center? What did you think it was going to be? 

•  D.J.’s relationship with her family evolves a great deal over the book, and the series. Provide examples of this evolution with her father — mother — Curtis — Win — Bill. 

•  Brian’s father has a small but critical role in Front and Center — indeed, in all three books. What does he add to the story? What do Amber and Dale add? 

•  Dale and Curtis are my two favorite characters in the series. Who are yours? 

•  What did you think about Brian and D.J.? What about Beaner and D.J.? How would you react in D.J.’s shoes? 

•  Do you know anyone who’s been recruited for college, either for athletics or for other activities? What was their experience? How would you feel in D.J.’s situation? 

•  How do the issues and problems that D.J. faces in Front and Center compare to those in Dairy Queen and The Off Season?

•  In Front and Center, The Off Season and Dairy Queen, D.J. each time writes to a specific recipient — to an audience of one, if you will. How does this structure affect the books, and the reading experience? 

  1. What’s the moral of Front and Center? Of the Dairy Queen series?

Chapter One   •   about the book   •   about the cover
