A very well done science fiction novel, heavy on the social politics, but not to the point where you feel like you're dragging your heels. It's more of a character study that takes place against a futuristic sports novel backdrop than a sports novel itself. And while Monica's character is young, I think she can easily relate to readers of all ages. After all, who among us hasn't dreamed of greatness, only to discover that wanting and having are two different things?
