Carrie's lost her edge. She's tired of her life being only about tennis and missing out on parties, trips to the mall with her friends, and boys. More than anything, Carrie's really tired of the pressure from her parents to be the best, especially when she's not sure she still wants to play tennis.

During a tournament, Carrie makes a drastic decision and fakes a leg injury, withdrawing from competition. Her coach realizes Carrie's lie and pushes her student into a camp in Florida, away from her controlling parents. In a month, Carrie must decide if she wants to continue playing and how hard she's willing to work to achieve her dream.

GAME, SET, AND MATCH is just one of the sports books in Donna King's repertoire that prove she knows all about sports, pressure, and the desire to win. Her books fill a much-needed gap in sports fiction for girls.
