A Great Good Place for Books
“The word 'Amazing' doesn't begin to describe this book. Carrie Soto is a tennis phenom called 'the next Billie Jean King' by reporters in the 1970's and Taylor Jenkins Reid takes you into the life of a competitive tennis player at the highest levels. You crawl inside her head and see the desire to be the BEST and win at any costs - even if it means sacrificing relationships to do so. This audiobook is amazing because not only does Stacy Gonzalez do a brilliant job, but because Mary Carillo, Patrick McEnroe and more lend their voices to the story - so you get the feeling that you're listening to actual segments on ESPN. You quickly forget that you're listening to fiction and you feel like you're getting the autobiography of a female tennis player - complete with men who make comments about how women's tennis is 'not as difficult as the men's game.' I loved every minute of this audiobook and I already know it's going to be on my Books of the Year list for 2022. ”Jennifer,

ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: Time, NPR, PopSugar, Glamour, Reader’s Digest
Carrie Soto is fierce, and her determination to win at any cost has not made her popular. But by the time she retires from tennis, she is the best player the world has ever seen. She has shattered every record and claimed twenty Grand Slam titles. And if you ask Carrie, she is entitled to every one. She sacrificed nearly everything to become the best, with her father, Javier, as her coach. A former champion himself, Javier has trained her since the age of two.
But six years after her retirement, Carrie finds herself sitting in the stands of the 1994 US Open, watching her record be taken from her by a brutal, stunning player named Nicki Chan.
At thirty-seven years old, Carrie makes the monumental decision to come out of retirement and be coached by her father for one last year in an attempt to reclaim her record. Even if the sports media says that they never liked “the Battle-Axe” anyway. Even if her body doesn’t move as fast as it did. And even if it means swallowing her pride to train with a man she once almost opened her heart to: Bowe Huntley. Like her, he has something to prove before he gives up the game forever.
In spite of it all, Carrie Soto is back, for one epic final season. In this riveting and unforgettable novel, Taylor Jenkins Reid tells her most vulnerable, emotional story yet.
