Run away. Be Great. Get the best Education.
FAMEPUNK is a novel that takes place in a fictional version of women's professional tennis history.
The story opens with US Open 1987. When an unknown qualifier from Brooklyn topples a tournament favorite in a second round night match, veteran sports writer Ellen Nagoya finds herself on the dangerous trail of the year's biggest-and most mysterious-story in sports.
Meanwhile, as brash, big-tipping, yellow-eyed teenager Emma Jasohn makes her more and more outrageous way to a title showdown with the great Freya, who knows everything, they're joined on the world stage by an international cast of characters-including:
Amanda McKinley...whose two-fisted backhand made her America's sweetheart, but whose back has done her wrong;
Ilya Kasimov...talent recruit;
Maria Helm...whose daughter the Wimbledon champion is turning out to be a disappointment;
Shanaya Greene...the Ice House Princess of Coney Island whose tennis scholarship at Stanford University is on the line;
And Z...whose daughter Theodosia is going to set the tennis world on fire-next year, when she turns twelve.
