One of Anne Lamott\'s best.
I regretted reaching the end of this book. Anne Lamott has just been added among my favorite authors.
There is no question Anne Lamott is a solid writer. I simply do not get enthralled in her books.I found the tennis vignettes almost tedious, and I love tennis. The characterizations are precise and definitive. Simply not my cup of insight!
Fairly conventional and predictable, yet well-written and touching coming-of-age novel.
Another one of Anne Lamott's gems! I love her book's characters because she develops them with warts and all, just like the rest of us! I always come away with some food for thought, no matter if I read her fiction or her nonfiction.
Wonderful. Anne Lamott is such a gorgeous writer!
Fiction as good as Lamott's autobiographical works. Appealing, involving characters..quietly moving. An excellent read.
I really enjoyed this book. It had a lot more depth to it that I wasn't expecting.
This is the first book I've read by Anne Lamott. It took a few chapters before I could get into the characters but I did enjoy it and will look for her other books. Her characters are believable and the story line kept me going to see how things concluded.
One of Entertainment Weekly's top ten novels of 1997
At 13, Rosie plays a gangly, pigeon-toed second fiddle to her juicy, sexy friend Simone. The two are junior tennis champs who often cart home trophies. But driven by the gnawing fear that she's a loser, Rosie starts to cheat. Meantime, boy-crazy Simone dabbles in off-court disaster. Up in the bleachers a weird loner named Luther obsessively follows Rosie's games, while at home her mother wrestles her own demons.
This book is brand new. I have not been able to bring myself to read it. So I tought someone else may enjoy it
