I've read and seen this book at GR a lot of times since I joined in but it never did became a part of my to-read
shelf, I don't really know why so please don’t ask me that. But this certain time came when I saw this book on a retail book store for a super lesser price so I immediately grab it thinking that 'I just want a book to read and I've seen this on GR and it seems to be good'
and then Surprise Surprise! I loved it!!
D.J and her family don't talk. Not literally, but they just don’t say things and they mostly want to spend their time working. Now that she finally found her own voice, it comes out that D.J has a lot to say.
D.J is a very genuine character. I simply love and adore her. I wanted to cheer her on every page of the book. Her commitment to her family and work and even the sports she plays are exceptional. It’s really nice seeing her voice out the things that she long wanted to say. I feel the sudden freedom she felt whenever she tries to say things. Oh and reading with her voice was so nice! Never did the boredom parts came. She’s hilarious and cute and funny and cute.
Dairy Queen makes me laugh and understand things. It gives us an idea to what real communication and how important it is and as to what happens when things are left unsaid; because sometimes we really do regret things that we didn’t say.
It was such a pleasant and heartwarming read. I’m pretty much looking forward on reading its sequel. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the second book would be much more fun. Yay!!
