A teen tennis star decides that the craziness of fame and the pressure of her schedule no longer make sense. Although she's at the top of her game, and has access to lucrative commercial opportunities, she just wants out. She takes a year in hiding at an out-of-the-way small town, but even in a population of less than a hundred people, she manages to meet an interesting boy. How can she reconcile the fame from her past life and the quiet from her new one?
Some fun escapism, and enjoyable writing. Some mature content ages this out of being appropriate for some elementary readers.
The best discussion questions, of course, are generated by and contemplated by readers. These questions are designed to avoid major spoilers about the book, and to provide a starting point for teachers, parents, and student reading groups.
