In the final installment of her quartet of novels about fictional famous women, Taylor Jenkins Reid tells an epic comeback story. The novel begins as Carrie Soto, a tennis champion who was once the best player in the world, decides to get back on the court six years after her retirement. A younger player has just broken her record—and Carrie is determined to do whatever it takes to win it back. While she’s focused on reclaiming what was once hers, she also begins to rethink her relationship with her success. Who, exactly, is she playing for? As Reid reveals the answer, she underscores the challenges and complications that come with being the best of the best. —Annabel Gutterman
