Carrie Soto is the greatest player the world has ever seen.

But six years after her last match, she watches a young British tennis player steal her world record - and Carrie knows she has to go back and reclaim her rightful place at the top. Even if the world doesn't believe in her. Even if it almost breaks her.

This is a story about the cost of greatness and the burden of fame.

The fight for a place in history is about to begin . . .

'It artfully combines the heady glamour of elite sport with questions about what happens when we find ourselves winning professionally, but losing personally' STYLIST

Reviews for Carrie Soto Is Back

A portrait of female ambition in all its raw and divine glory, Carrie Soto will stay with you long after the last page is turned -- Erin Kelly This Nineties tennis romp is a crowd-pleaser. Taylor Jenkins Reid captures all the sweat, rivalry and glamour of elite sport * The Times * In typical TJR fashion, it artfully combines the heady glamour of elite sport with questions about what happens when we find ourselves winning professionally, but losing personally . . . an escapist beach read * Stylist * An exhilarating, immersive and gripping ode to the cost of greatness, this is Taylor Jenkins Reid's best book yet. Carrie Soto is an icon for the ages. Five stars, ten out of ten, an A+ and more from me! -- Laura Jane Williams There's something about Carrie I will take forward with me in my life, and be a little better for. This book comes out in a few short weeks and you should preorder it. It made me cry twice, and when I finished reading, I had to sit for a minute with the hole it left in my chest . . . just order it -- Emily Henry Fans of Taylor Jenkins Reid will adore this * Stellar * Just like Carrie Soto, it's such a thrill to watch Taylor Jenkins Reid get better and better . . . she uses fame to illuminate the battles every woman has to fight - and in doing so, makes the reader feel powerful, too -- Caroline O'Donoghue Addictive, fun and heartwarming. You will never want to leave Carrie Soto -- Fearne Cotton Not every woman worries about winning a Grand Slam, but many can likely relate to Soto's challenges with getting older, wanting it all, and trying to manage a fiercely competitive spirit when the world expects women to stay quiet and smile nicely. It's for these reasons you find yourself rooting for the star, in spite of an attitude which isn't about endearing herself to others. Jenkins Reid has written yet another page-turner which will have you hooked, from the first serve to match point. 9/10 * Independent * Compulsive . . . A voyeuristic glimpse into the lives of the sporting elite * Daily Telegraph * I was (still am) obsessed with her 2019 faux-oral history of a sixties rock band Daisy Jones and the Six and have taken one of her novels on holiday with me ever since. Her next book, Carrie Soto is Back, is released just in time for the dying days of summer on Tuesday 30 August. I must get a trip booked * iNews * This some of Reid's best writing: focused, colourful and compassionate. The question is not whether Carrie can win, but whether she can ever be happy * iNews * These are the types of novels to read if you're looking to be swept away by a dazzling, entertaining story with fascinating characters * Cosmopolitan * Like Jenkins Reid's Daisy Jones and The Six, this is a compulsive read about the price of success * Grazia * If you're still in mourning for Wimbledon, this is the novel for you * Metro * She's done rock 'n' roll, she's done surfing now Taylor Jenkins Reid turns her attention to the world of elite tennis in this hugely entertaining and compulsively readable novel about a tennis player who comes out of retirement in her late 30s to reclaim her former glory * Red * The captivating tale of a former tennis star goaded out of retirement in a final bid for grand-slam glory. Edge-of-your-sunlounger stuff * Mail on Sunday * Taylor Jenkins Reid has done it again with her powerful new novel, which sees a legendary athlete attempt a comeback when the world considers her past her prime * Hello * Taylor Jenkins Reid is fast becoming a modern literary success, with a chain of hugely popular novels under her belt . . . Her forte is creating page- turners about the rich, famous and the people lurking on the shadows of their starry lives. Fans of her previous work won't be disappointed with this exhilarating, escapist novel that will make the perfect summer read - strawberries and cream optional * Carlisle Living * Jenkins Reid has written yet another page-turner which will have you hooked, from the first serve to match point * Press Association * This raw and powerful read shows Carrie growing and learning, about herself as much as others. Though she's an abrasive character, readers will cheer her on every step of the way * Sunday Express * TJR is surely the queen of escapist fiction * Sunday Telegraph * This top-rank tale of beating the odds is full of heart and breezy charm * Metro * Altogether, it makes for a gripping and engaging read about a woman persevering against all odds, recognising your limits and knowing when to push back. As well as a complex and nuanced character study, Carrie Soto is Back offers its readers a warm-hearted story of the love between a father and a daughter, as well a tender journey of learning how to love yourself and open up to others too. Between the action-packed tennis matches, Carrie's emotional reckoning and the wider commentary of women having to continuously fight for recognition in male-dominated fields, Taylor Jenkins Reid has crafted another compelling novel that effortlessly draws in readers and will no doubt keep them thinking about Carrie Soto long after they turn the final page * Culturefly * At times, her prose is so engaging that you feel as though you are waiting on the baseline while Soto gets ready to serve an unstoppable ace * Independent (Ireland) * In Carrie Soto is Back, as at Flushing Meadows this and next month, there are great rivalries, millions of dollars and legacies on the line. Letting go cuts deep. But, boy, there is glamour * Tatler * The author has created another heroine we can't quite work out whether we like, but we're rooting for her anyway because she's fabulous * Woman's Weekly * Another delectable slice of escapism drama * Living North * Pacy, propulsive and utterly immersive, you're going to want to read this * Elle * Taylor has done it again . . . a brilliant and dynamic book about what it means to be an ambitious woman- for better or for worse * Woman * With a wonderfully complex character, a world you can't help being seduced by, and an important message about it never being too late, TJR has served up another ace * Heat * Frank, funny and emotional * Marie Claire * A fascinatingly realistic look into the world of elite sports where driven and flawed characters' private lives are just as intriguing and controversial as they are on the court * Business Post * This is a well-researched, exciting and genuinely tender book * RTÉ *
