P not getting saidHarsh words indeed from Brian Nelson of When I finally found a spare two minutes to sit down and start reading this book I suddenly ended up drawn in for a couple of hours discovering that Dairy ueen is just as ridiculously funny silly and heartwarming as everyone had told me it was And strangely inspirational too I love anyone who dares to break the mold especially young females who challenge gender stereotypes and go their own way I will admit that I am not the biggest fan of chick lit novels so I should warn you that this would probably never have got five stars from me and the fact that it got four stars should not be taken lightly when I'm dishing it out in this genre This book has all the elements you could want from a light hearted teen read a funny likeable and slightly snarky protagonist cute boys some family troubles nothing too heavy romance friendships insecurities and overcoming them this stands out for me amongst others of its kind and I will give it the best compliment I can by saying that if you're a fan of Louise Rennison E Lockhart andor Stephanie Perkins I can see no reason why you wouldn't love thisDJ Shwenk is a great character You know why I think she is such a great character Because she does sport and farming two things that interest me about as much as Kim Kardashian's novel and yet she still manages to keep my attention from the very first chapter It takes A LOT to literally make someone laugh out loud while reading as in to actually pause and giggle stupidly to oneself and think if Big Brother was watching right now I would be arrested and locked away forever am I paranoid are these weird thoughts Anyway this novel does this repeatedly and I'm glad I didn't read it in publicI put this book off for two reasons 1 I never thought I would enjoy a book about either sport or farming never mind both And 2 I've been busy reading the dark disturbing depressing supernatural and fantasy books which is all very well but sometimes we need a little bright happiness from our novels This delivers trust me this delivers

Dairy ueenWhen you don’t talk there’s a lot of stuff that ends u A very cute story about a 15 turning 16 year old girl named DJ who has only ever known life in her dad’s farm She’s responsible does what everyone expects of her obedient and hardworking Not much different from the cows she milks every day “And that’s what put me to sleep Thinking about cows or elephant poops” LMAOOne day she decides she doesn’t want to be a cow any and I mean this in a completely metaphorically way so chill^^ and that’s where the plot becomes really interesting Written in a very candid and genuine manner in the POV of DJ herself as a journal for her English reuirement to redeem her flunked grade the story I think is very genuine and the voice of the narrative truly sounded as if it’s written by a young farm girl and this is probably what made the entire story simply adorable It's also heartwarming and inspiring As Uncle Walt Whitman once said “Simplicity is the glory of expression”
