Carrie Soto is back

11.98

Carrie Soto is fierce, and her determination to win at any cost has not made her popular. By the time Carrie retires from tennis, she is the best player the world has ever seen. She has shattered every record and claimed twenty Slam titles. And if you ask her, she is entitled to every one. She sacrificed nearly everything to become the best, with her father as her coach. 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, British 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.

Description

From the bestselling author of MALIBU RISING, DAISY JONES & THE SIX and THE SEVEN HUSBANDS OF EVELYN HUGO

‘It made me cry twice, and when I finished reading, I had to sit for a minute with the hole it left in my chest . . . just order it‘ EMILY HENRY

‘A crowd-pleaser. Taylor Jenkins Reid captures all the sweat, rivalry and glamour of elite sport’ THE TIMES

‘Jenkins Reid has written yet another page turner . . . [it] will have you hooked’ INDEPENDENT

Carrie Soto is the greatest player the world has ever seen.

But six years after her last match, she watches a young British tennis player steal her world record – and Carrie knows she has to go back and reclaim her rightful place at the top. Even if the world doesn’t believe in her. Even if it almost breaks her.

This is a story about the cost of greatness and the burden of fame.

The fight for a place in history is about to begin . . .

‘It artfully combines the heady glamour of elite sport with questions about what happens when we find ourselves winning professionally, but losing personally’ STYLIST

A portrait of female ambition in all its raw and divine glory, Carrie Soto will stay with you long after the last page is turned’ ERIN KELLY
