This book was very compelling until the halfway point when, frankly, I lost interest. The disconnect I experienced was the result of a catastrophic event that was a little too deus-ex-machina for my taste. There's heavy foreshadowing leading up to this event and the finesse that had been demonstrated up to that point was lost. I'll chalk it up to first novel kinks. Overall, the novel is a good glimpse into the sacrifices that serious athletes make all for the slight chance of glory on an international stage. Makes you think twice about pushing your kids into sports, at least competitively.
