Reviews

"Jaimet has written a fast-paced story from a first-person narrative. She easily explains the rules of the game whilst maintaining the excitement of a match and conveying the adrenaline rush a player feels during competition. Pre-teen and teen boys will find Jaimet's adrenaline-soaked descriptions of the matches to be a fast and exhilarating read. However, what is most commendable about the book is the character Jaimet has created in Connor. She bypasses a flat, stock jock-character for a more mature young man who contemplates morality and how it would translate in action...An engaging story filled with vivid descriptions, insightful characters and a fast-paced plot line that will appeal to pre-teen and teen boys."--CM Magazine
"[Jaimet's] first-person descriptions of the hero playing a tennis match are well-researched; the ring of authenticity and the concurrent sub-plots work well with the story's main focus."--Resource Links
"Filled with fast-paced action...The chapters that describe different tennis matches are particularly well written, with the reader feeling as if they are standing right next to the court. If you love tennis (like me) the scenes outlining the back-and-forth volleys and rushes towards the net are a joy to read. Even if you are not a huge tennis fan, or for that matter a sports enthusiast, these scenes are still a lot of fun."--Apartment613 blog
