Carrie Soto Is Back
Taylor Jenkins Reid
Praise For This Book:
"The books in Reid's famous women quartet stand alone. . . . But each of the books centers a vibrant protagonist managing the tensions between her glamorous life in the public eye and the pressures she feels in private . . . with Reid meticulously collecting minute yet meaningful details to help build immersive worlds" - Time

"Carrie Soto Is Back . . . is like other sports novels in which underdogs punch, volley, bat and birdie their way to victory or additional defeat, but it goes beyond this to explore sexism and racism in the tennis world in the 1990s. . . . This novel will grab you. You'll tear through blow-by-blow descriptions of championship matches on some of the most famous tennis courts in the world. . . ." - The Washington Post

"An epic story about bravery, endurance, but also the power of vulnerability." - BuzzFeed

"Reid . . . draws on the lives of actual tennis pros (think Serena, Sharapova) to build a world of believable rivalries and intrigue infused with the whiplash suspense of a nail-biting tennis match." - People Book of the Week

"Nearly every Taylor Jenkins Reid novel reads like a survey course in some flagrantly glamorous specialty and era. . . . Come for the King Richard level attention to the art of the game; stay for the more personal soap operas unfolding off the court, and the final score." - Entertainment Weekly

"Taylor Jenkins Reid's latest is set in the world of the tennis elite, following a ruthless former champion whoafter losing her record to a rising stardecides to come out of retirement at 37 in order to reclaim her title. It's seriously inspiring." - Cosmopolitan

"Reid writes about the game with suspense, transforming a tennis match into a page-turner even for readers who don't care about sports. . . . A compulsively readable look at female ambition." - Kirkus Reviews starred review

"Reid has written another knockout of a book." - Library Journal starred review

"Reid captures the excitement of elite sports in her descriptions of Carrie's games, as well as the struggle that women athletes face when their ambition and confidence is 'too much.' It's another triumph for bestselling author Reid, and her growing number of fans . . . " - Booklist starred review
