About this product
- DescriptionSet in the peach country of rth Georgia during the 1930s, D.J. s Worst Enemy is the story of a twelve-year-old boy deeply at odds with himself.It seems as if D.J. Madison would prefer to make enemies than friends. His pranks have a mean-spirited edge to them, especially those he plays on his tag-along younger brother, Skinny Little Renfroe, and his kw-it-all older sister Clara May. D.J. s friend Nutty is content with the friendly rivalry he and D.J. have with the four Castor boys who live nearby. D.J., however, would rather fight them for real than just wrestle. But, what D.J. does and what he feels inside are two different things. He kws that times are hard eugh for his family. He really wants to act better toward them--toward everyone--but is t quite sure where or how to start.Finally, D.J. goes too far. He seriously injures Renfroe and then ruins Clara May s chances for a coveted community hor. Rather than get even, both Renfroe and Clara May turn to their family for support. In their strength D.J. finds his own, and vows that he will longer be his own worst enemy.
