On 6th June 2013, Bloomsbury are publishing tennis star Monica Seles' first fiction book for teens. 'The Academy: Game On' provides a behind-the-scenes look at life for aspiring sports stars of the future and is on my to-read list. Take a look at the trailer below:
The Academy is the hottest international sports school for teen athletes. There are only two ways in: money – and lots of it – or enough 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.
