Here I am not someone’s little sister. Not someone’s daughter. Not someone’s friend. This game beckons me—chooses me. I am a warrior. An Amazon. I am beautiful. And I play to win.
Holloway Braxton takes no prisoners on the tennis court. She’s nationally ranked on the junior circuit, and she has outgrown the local competition. Her parents want to send her to a tennis academy where they regularly churn out professional players, but Hall isn’t sure she’s ready to devote her entire life to tennis, especially after her training partner has a breakdown at a tournament. Is it possible to be a tennis phenom and a regular teenager at the same time?
