The premise: Young tennis star Maya's dreams have finally come true when she earns a scholarship to The Academy. Plucked from her small town, Maya moves to the sports training facility/boarding school to start the beginning of her pro career. But Maya's fantasy of The Academy doesn't quite match the reality. Maya finds herself rooming with another scholarship student, and quickly realizes that the rules are different for them than for the paying students. Maya suddenly finds herself swept up into the world of privilege, and struggles to remember who she is amongst the newfound fame and attention she starts receiving. Her willingness to trust make her an easy target for those wanting to pull her down, and that's where all the trouble starts.
If you're looking for a story that is loaded with tennis training and tournament action, this isn't it. Hopefully, in future sequels more will be added.
Instead, what you will find is lots and lots of drama — mean girls, bad boys, hormones, embarrassing mistakes, jealousy, revenge and learning about true friendship.
A quick but fun read, that I have to admit, has me waiting for the next sequel.
