Rusch s Queens of the Court analogy makes an undemocratic introduction that may work for those who view tennis champions as royalty. She adds a strong argument that women dominate the sport with supporting stats for Martina Navratilova, Billie Jean King, and Chris Evert. The book continues with basic rules and strategies for the game and then provides tips on training and healthy diet. The goal for the reader is high school, college, and pro competition, and the overriding message is you have to want to win. Even losers are winners on the path to pro competition, and the pro players quoted emphasize a positive attitude. Their photos and short bios add interest to the straightforward information, and the easy to read type will appeal to reluctant readers. This high interest title in the Snap Books Girls Got Game series concludes with a glossary, an index, and a brief bibliography. Overall, it is a solid invitation to live a life without limits. --Childrens Literature Comprehensive Database, January 2007
