Maise is back at the boarding school where she plays tennis for her senior year. Only, this year it's a total mess because her uncle - once a coach at the school - stole a bunch of money and ran off. And everyone is blaming Maise! Then, the school decides to go on a reality school, and adds in a few "high profile" tennis players to make the show look better.

If that wasn't bad enough, Maise hits one of them in the face with a tennis ball - not on purpose, she swears! 

This is 100% a light and cute YA/teen book. And for that market, it's perfect. It's got drama between best friends, two people who aren't supposed to be together but find they're great outcasts together, and a Hollywood producer willing to do anything to get ahead - thus bringing everyone together against her. 3.75/5 stars, and a great beach read.

 I was provided an ARC copy of this book through Netgalley. My thanks to the publisher and the author for providing it to me.
