And what if someone discovered their group and tried to eliminate all final girls, once and for all?

Even though I have no interest in tennis, I couldn't put this book down, which is a testament to how compelling the characters and their relationships are. Carrie Soto was the best tennis player the world had ever seen. So when her Grand Slam record is about to be taken from her, she decided to come out of retirement in an effort to defend it. What follows is a grueling journey of self-discovery and acceptance, alongside her father and an old flame. I read this in one sitting and especially enjoyed the father-daughter relationship and the book's take on ageing and facing our limitations.

R. F. Kuang's satire of modern publishing is wildly funny, thought-provoking, and leaves no one in the publishing world unscathed. June and Athena are both writers—with varying degrees of success... While Athena is an acclaimed author, June's only book was a flop. When Athena meets an untimely (and very weird) death, June steals her manuscript and publishes it as her own. June, our narrator, becomes increasingly delusional and watching her justify her worsening actions was equal parts enraging and entertaining. I highly recommend Kuang's hilarious take on the internet and social media, authorship and authenticity, and race in the publishing industry.
