"Games of many sorts lead to triumph, tragedy, angst, joy, hookups, and breakups for teens in tales set both on and off the playing field...Readers will find this collection fresh, thought-provoking, and wise in the ways of adolescent coming-of-age...likely to broaden anyone’s notion of what winning is all about."
— Kirkus Reviews
