Josephine Angelina McIvers is a teenager in the mid-1960s, the tumultuous era of a class-conscious America in the throes of the Vietnam War. Under the shadow of an overly protective mother, she matures into adulthood, coping with true love found and then lost. Immersing herself in playing tennis, she ventures forth into the world to find personal as well as professional fulfillment. On her coming-of-age journey, Josey learns that scoring points both in the sport of tennis and the game of life is not as easy as she thought it would be. Set in a small suburban village just outside of New York City, this is an enjoyable, yet poignant novel about growing up and discovering one's true self and one's place on and off the courts of the world.
