The Academy is an International Sports Mecca for teen athletes of all sports. There are only two ways in. Deep pockets or enough talent to score a scholarship.
Young tennis star Maya's dreams have finally come true when she earns a scholarship to The Academy. Plucked from her small town, Maya moves to the sports training facility/boarding school to (hopefully) start the beginning of her pro career. But Maya's fantasy of The Academy doesn't quite match the reality. Because where there are hot, talented teens, there's a lot of drama.

I don't normally read this sort of book.....in fact I tend to stay away from them. I'm not really sure what made me choose this one..but I'm glad I did.
Our main character Maya is a future tennis star, she has has been fighting for the chance to join The Academy and that's where are story begins. She has low self esteem when it comes to friends and boys but knows Tennis is her future. The Academy is full of many future sporting stars. We have Cleo, Maya's punky roommate a brewing golf player. Renee, the stunning swimmer whose parents bought her way in. Nicole, someone who is already a Tennis star and feels threatened by Maya. We also have Travis and Jake the sons of The Academy owner, one a handsome NFL star and the other a no good wannabe.
In an attempt to make it to the top Maya starts to change and soon forgets the reason she is really at The Academy. She loses perspective on what is important.
We do have the typical teenage girl with low self esteem and a handsome completely out of reach boy...yeah that same old story.
However there was something different about it ..I can't quite put my finger on it but there was a difference. This isn't meant to be a serious book, its a bit of fun. A nice easy read to to enjoy and forget about your own life for a little bit.
To enjoy the sort of characters I'm sure we all went to school with. The sporty girl, the bitchy girl and the quirky best friend. Then the guys, the one you really like but could never get and the annoying one who likes you but you wouldn't be seen dead with.
So sit back and relax with this one. I really enjoyed it and got through it a lot quicker than I thought.
