Book Review

(by- Linda )

Carrie Soto is a tennis phenom who has won several grand slams throughout her illustrious career. But she wants to come out of retirement and defend her record.

This is an inside look at the devotion, hard work, and personal sacrifices professional athletes must endure. And Carrie, above all else, wants to get the title.

I listened to this on audio and enjoyed the sports commentary provided and the voices of the characters. The audio version added an extra dimension to the story I loved, especially the father-daughter relationship and Carrie's intense drive to succeed. I couldn't help but compare the Williams sisters to Carrie, but you don't have to be a tennis fan to appreciate this book. It's about relationships, comebacks, and how the world responds. Reid is one of my favorite authors, and she delivers an excellent read once again. I can't wait for her next book.
