When you don't talk, there's a lot of stuff that ends up not getting said. Harsh words indeed, from Brian Nelson of all people. But, D.J. can't help admitting, maybe he's right. When you don't talk, there's a lot of stuff that ends up not getting said. Stuff like why her best friend, Amber, isn't so friendly anymore. Or why her little brother, Curtis, never opens his mouth. Why her mom has two jobs and a big secret. Why her college-football-star brothers won't even call home. Why her dad would go ballistic if she tried out for the high school football team herself. And why Brian is so, so out of her league. When you don't talk, there's a lot of stuff that ends up not getting said. Welcome to the summer that fifteen-year-old D.J. Schwenk of Red Bend, Wisconsin, learns to talk, and ends up having an awful lot of stuff to say.

"Fifteen-year-old D.J. lives in Red Bend, Wisconsin, in a family in which all the boys play football. She's a basketball star. When her father breaks his hip, D.J. must give up sports and do all the milking, mucking, and mowing on their farm. During the summer D.J. trains the quarterback from rival Hawley High and discovers that football is her passion. Natalie Moore does an outstanding job creating such a likable D.J. that listeners will hang on every word. Moore sounds like a teenager. Her voice is characterized by sarcastic introspection and uncertainty, as well as an authentic questioning rise at the end of many a sentence. A.B. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
