Published: Ballantine Books - August 30th, 2022

Carrie Soto, the tennis champion, is back to defend her record-setting career. It's invigorating to read about someone being relentless in what they do. But, there is always a cost. In this case, to one's identity, legacy, and relationships due to the stakes being so high. This book portrays an unapologetic fight to the death, and the inevitable growth that comes along with it. All I can say is that it is a beautiful thing to witness.
