Ever since Carrie Springsteen was old enough to hold a tennis racket, her dad has been training her to be the best. Now that she's 12, she's a star player. But Carrie is tired of having to chose between her friends and tennis - between having fun and endless hours on the court. Will a month at a top tennis school in Florida help Carrie to rediscover her love of tennis and her will to win? "Unbeatables" are sports stories for girls, featuring attractive, feisty heroines with a talent for sport. Each novel features a popular sport with girl-appeal, from tennis to ice-skating. Lively, fast-paced plots show each heroine coping with problems that have the potential to affect her sporting success and happiness, but hard work and talent win through in the end. Carrie Springsteen is a 12-year-old tennis champion, but she's lost her love for the game and her nerve. Her parents have been pushing her to succeed for years and Carrie has had enough. A faked injury gets her out of a tournament, but her coach spots the problem and sends her off for a make-or-break month at a top tennis academy in Florida.
