Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gr. 4-6. This latest addition to the Matt Christopher Sports Bio Bookshelf series covers the dual careers of Venus and Serena Williams, setting their place in tennis history, a topic that is well explored. The book focuses primarily on the older Venus, but follows both women from early childhood through 2001 wins. The women are presented as strong, well-educated people devoted to their families and proud of their accomplishments. Controversial topics are discussed, including the role their father has played in their careers and the positive and negative effects race has had on the sisters' popularity and the responsibility they feel because of who they are. Detailed scenes of actual tennis matches will seem long to those more interested in the biographical information. An inset of black-and-white photos captures the women's appeal. Stats and time lines are included. Marta Segal
