Description

Harper Hunter doesn't know how it came to this.

Her tennis dreams are collapsing: her coach says she doesn't have what it takes to make it in the world of professional tennis.

Her new doubles partner is moody, mysterious and angry at the world. What is he hiding?

She is in love with Jacob, but he is her sister's boyfriend. Or, he was. Harper could never betray Aria with Jacob ... could she?

As Harper's heart and dreams pull her in different directions, she has to figure out exactly what she wants. And just how hard she's willing to fight to get it.

PRAISE FOR THE HARPER EFFECT

"An exciting peek inside the world of professional tennis, this adorable young adult romance will leave you wanting to hit fireballs at your opponent across the court and snuggling up to your doubles partner after the match!" Kristine Asselin, author of Any Way You Slice It

"Details about tennis and the struggles of teens on the cusp of adulthood are nicely balanced. Harper is well-characterized, and the secondary characters, including coaches and parents, ring true. Colt and his backstory are compelling, and the revelations are skillfully handled. The match action is pitch-perfect. . . . A layered romance in a unique setting." Kirkus Reviews

"debut author Bashford captures the conflicting emotions of a teen facing more than her share of dilemmas. Harper's struggle to sort out priorities, understand the meaning of love, and emerge a winner will be strongly felt." Publisher's Weekly
