Description

Ever since Cassie was old enough to hold a tennis racket, her dad has been training her to be the best. Now age twelve, she's a star player with fast reactions, long legs, and an excellent backhand. But something is wrong: she just doesn't feel the same way about tennis anymore. She keeps having to choose between her friends and tennis -- between having fun or endless hours on the court. When Cassie is whisked away for a make-or-break month that will decide her future, she realizes she must make a decision. Does she have what it takes both on and off the court?show more

Our customer reviews

Carrie's lost her edge. She's tired of her life being only about tennis and missing out on parties, trips to the mall with her friends, and boys. More than anything, Carrie's really tired of the pressure from her parents to be the best, especially when she's not sure she still wants to play tennis. During a tournament, Carrie makes a drastic decision and fakes a leg injury, withdrawing from competition. Her coach realizes Carrie's lie and pushes her student into a camp in Florida, away from her controlling parents. In a month, Carrie must decide if she wants to continue playing and how hard she's willing to work to achieve her dream. GAME, SET, AND MATCH is just one of the sports books in Donna King's repertoire that prove she knows all about sports, pressure, and the desire to win. Her books fill a much-needed gap in sports fiction for girls.show more
