A-M-A-Z-I-N-G that words are the only words that can describe this wonderful book.

I really liked this book...:)

Apart from just enjoying it from a story point of view, it taught me some things as well and the most important of them is that there will always be people who wouldn't want you to succeed and will do anything to get you down but you need to believe in yourself. Also, a lot of people will pressurize you to do things but in the end the decision lies in your hands so before you do anything, you need to figure out whether you are doing something for your own self or bec

I picked the 2 books up by this author as I am trying to read so different style books these years. What I didn't realise at the time was that they were aim at teenagers. So I was expecting something different to what I got. That said it was a very quick and easy read and I suspect if I was a teenager in to sport I would have found it much more enjoyable.

I am a tennis fanatic, so it goes without saying, that I read all of the tennis books. It didn't break any new ground, but I thought this book was perfectly amiable tween-jock fiction. The tennis scenes were short, but action-packed, and featured lots of hard-hitting and hard-fought points.
