Grade 3-6-Steve Greeley, 12, and his sister Ginny, 14, are excellent tennis players. Their father coaches them and has high hopes that his son will someday play on the pro tour, something he could not do because of a knee injury. Steve, however, has other interests and isn't ready to commit himself to full-time tennis. Meanwhile, their father doesn't take Ginny's game seriously, and she would love to go pro. The plot is transparent but the lively action throughout will keep young players intrigued. However, readers will have to know quite a bit about the game. Some terms are defined within the text, but many are not. Christopher serves another winner for fans of the sport.
