Game, Set, Match by Jennifer Iacopelli

Reviewed by Charlotte Lynn

Three up and coming tennis stars, Penny Harrison, Jasmine Randazzo, and Indiana Gaffney, train at the Outer Banks Training Center in North Carolina.  They all have dreams of making it big.

Penny’s goal is to win the French Open beating her biggest rival Zina Lutrova.  Her coach brings in Britis tennis star Alex Russell as her training partner and sparks fly.

Jasmine is the daughter of two Grand Slam Champions so the pressure on her to succeed is high.  When Teddy tells her they should be just friends her world is shaken and her future may not end up as she expects.

Indiana is the newcomer.  She has a killer serve and forehand.  When Penny’s older brother, Jack, gives her attention she is thrilled.  Except that every time things heat up, Jack backs off.

Whether into tennis or not this is an amazing story.  It has been on my wish list since before it was released.  There is three stories mixed into one wonderful novel.  Jennifer Iacopelli does an extraordinary job weaving the stories together but yet giving each character their own storyline.  Even the descriptions of the tennis match were captivating to me.  I loved how much energy and excitement was brought into each match always leaving me wanting more.

Game, Set, Match was written from three points of view.  Each view was a different girl, but had similar themes.  The themes of succeeding, making friendships, and of course, love and relationships.  The young women all seemed to have a good head on their shoulders and knew what needed to be done to achieve their goals, sometimes with a little nudge from the other adults in their lives.

This is a must read for the summer.  It is a worth while read.  I just hope the second book comes out soon.
