about

Nothing—and no one—will stand in Kathy’s way of winning the tennis championship. After all winning is everything . . . or is it?

Kathy Bardy doesn’t have the good looks and ease of her best friend, Julia. She doesn’t have the grades of her little sister, Jody. What she has is tennis. Kathy’s coach even says she’s the most promising New England junior to come along in years. With tennis come trophies, free equipment, and tournament prize money—and all these things put Kathy on equal more footing with pretty and well-heeled Julia.

Then, out of nowhere, comes Ruth Gumm, an indifferent player Kathy should beat every time. But Kathy can’t beat her. She loses her cool and her nerves every time Ruth is on the other side of the net. And Ruth is supposed to play Kathy in the first round of an important tournament, one that could lead to enormous future success for young Kathy Bardy.

Suddenly, Ruth is found drowned in a swimming pool. Is Kathy connected to Ruth’s death? Was it just an accident, or had someone else stepped into the picture?

 

This chilling mystery was named a runner-up for the Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America, an ALA Best Book for Young Adults, and a School Library Journal choice for Best Book for Young Adults.
