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 book in order to understand her a little more.I totally love DJ. She's one of the most adorable characters I've read. Her voice is so unmistakable, the way she explains herself little things and major life's lessons. How she's always talking about her family, friends. How much she cherish them and try to be there for them.The ending left me at a loss for words. Honestly, I did not see that coming. But really, I'd love to see Brian redeem himself and win her over. Or is there going to be another love interest, maybe? In one word this book was consistent and I can't wait to read the third and last installment in the Dairy Queen series.
