Carrie Soto is Back!

If you’ve got tennis fever, may we recommend diving into Taylor Jenkins Reid’s fantastic novel Carrie Soto is Back, newly out in paperback.

‘Some men’s childhoods are permitted to last forever, but women are so often reminded that there is work to be done.

Carrie Soto is the greatest female tennis player the world has ever seen. But six years after her last match, she watches a young British tennis player steal her world record – and Carrie knows she has to go back and reclaim her rightful place at the top.

‘Not every woman worries about winning a Grand Slam, but many can likely relate to Soto’s challenges with getting older, wanting it all, and trying to manage a fiercely competitive spirit when the world expects women to stay quiet and smile nicely. It’s for these reasons you find yourself rooting for the star, in spite of an attitude which isn’t about endearing herself to others.’ – The Independent
