Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book - tons of fun! This was an awesome book about Grace "Ace" Kincaid, a 15 year professional tennis champ who decides to quit because she has never just been a normal teen and the pressure is too much. Her mom swoops in gives her a new name, a new haircut, a nose ring (yay!) and a fake aunt who takes her home to Medicine Hat, Alaska - population 812. No more Luis Vuitton - instead long johns, an outhouse and no hot water. Of course, there is a cute guy and some angst over lying to her new friends but they know she is leaving in three months. The ending was good - a little less predictable than you would think and I ended up totally enjoying this book. Good clean fun appropriate for the younger teen crowd. I really loved it!
