About this product
- DescriptionThe Academy is the hottest international sports school for teen athletes. There are only two ways in: money - and lots of it - or eugh talent to earn a scholarship. Young tennis star Maya's dreams have finally come true! She's got the scholarship. She's got the drive. She's on her way from small town to pro career ...But when Maya starts boarding at the sports training school, her fantasy of the Academy doesn't quite match the reality - because where there are beautiful, talented teens, there's plenty of drama. Meet the players: Nicole: a tennis star who feels threatened by Maya (although she'd never admit it). Cleo: Maya's rebel / punk room-mate who's reaching the top of the golf world. Renee: a super-rich, super-gorgeous swimmer. Travis: the son of the Academy's owner and perfectly groomed to be the next big star of the National Football League. Jake: Travis's younger brother - and the bad boy of the school.
- Author BiographyMonica Seles won the French Open at the age of 16. She went on to become the number one ranked woman in tennis, winning a total of nine Grand Slam titles before retiring from the game in 2004. Monica was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 2009. She is now an ambassador for IIMSAM, the Intergovernmental Institution for the use of Micro-algae Spirulina Against Malnutrition, and a board member of the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, which uses the power of sport as a tool for change. Monica's memoir, Getting a Grip - On My Body, My Mind, My Self, was a US bestseller. James LaRosa loves drama, but he was too much of a goody-goody growing up to actually cause any. So he became a TV writer, concocting scandalous tales for US TV channels, including CBS, NBC, ABC Family and MTV. He also dug up dirt in sport, interviewing top athletes for USA Today, Tennis Magazine and Tennis Channel.
