Grade Level: Middle and High School. This book tells a story about a girl who has a passion for tennis, from a first person point of view. She has had a hard time choosing between her friends and tennis. I enjoyed this book because I am also an athlete and sometimes I have a hard time choosing between my friends and track. At one point in the book, her partner has a breakdown at a tournament. When that happened she started to wonder if she could be a tennis star and a normal teenager all at the same time. I can relate to this because when track season is here, I don't really have time for friends or anything else. All I have time for is my school work and track. I would recommend this book to an athlete because we can relate to what the narrator is going through, which makes it more interesting.
