AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'There is someone in trouble at Matt's school and for once it's not him!

'Marcus Wright - the boy all the girls swoon over - is a future tennis star. He has a solid forehand, a strong backhand, but his biggest asset is his mind. It can picture great shots like a movie screen and will him to victory, even when he's losing.

'But when Marcus learns he has to win the next state title or lose someone he loves, his mind is tested like never before. He has to turn to a girl he has a crush on, Kayla, and a tuckshop expert named Matthew for help. And they don't know a thing about tennis.

'Will he win, or will he lose?

'From the author of the award-winning book The Tuckshop Kid comes the companion adventure about tennis, tuckshop and tricks of the mind.' (From the publisher's website.)
