A fun, fast-paced romantic comedy
Sixteen-year-old Stan Claxton is recruited to coach his best friend, Ginny, a nationally ranked junior tennis player, through a local tournament. He is also supposed to find out why she has recently fallen into a slump. As Stan and Ginny slowly figure out just how their friendship will proceed, readers will delight in a quirky assortment of characters: Guballa and Wilcutts, Stan's other best friends, who both have the hots for Ginny; a female aerobics instructor with an incredible body and a face like Humphrey Bogart's; a glamorous unranked tennis player who might be a thief; Clinkt Eastwood--maybe; and the sophisticated Lord Boxton, one of Stan's tennis heroes, who previously owned the world's most expensive racquet. And then there are the whistling toilets. But readers will have to wait until the end of the novel to find out about those.
By no means a novel for sports lovers only, Randy Powell's latest assortment of likable eccentrics will win over readers of all predilections.
