Getting into The Academy is the easy part. Staying there takes more than just talent. After being betrayed by her rival and her boyfriend, Maya knows she needs to shrug off the drama and focus on her game. And after a strong showing in the semi-finals at a tennis competition, Maya seems pretty focused. Until that competition brings a new round of gossip, a modeling gig, and renewed feelings for . . . her ex?

And Maya's not the only one with drama. Cleo just won her first big golf tournament, but the blogs are bashing her alternative style. Renee is smitten with the school's newest soccer star, Diego. And the Reed brothers are being pitted against each other by their father, their love for Maya, and the press.

Praise For…

“An enticing combination of suspense, romance, mystery, fashion, and, of course, sports.” —Booklist

“Readers will find themselves pulling for this scrappy teen as she navigates fame and relationships.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Seles writes what she knows, providing a fascinating look at the behind-the-scenes business aspects that are a huge part of today's sports scenes. Readers who need a break from the violence, cruelty, and relentless menu of crises that are so much a part of current teen fiction will find a welcome diversion here.” —VOYA

“For readers who can't get enough of series like Cecily von Ziegesar's Gossip Girl and Zoey Dean's The A-List.” —School Library Journal on Game On

“This is a series premise with a lot of potential: The world of high-stakes athletics and its impact on teens hungry to succeed is compelling . . . the premise will attract readers, and the cast of characters is varied and interesting enough to hold them.” —Kirkus Reviews on Game On
