Venus and Serena Williams have taken the tennis world by storm. However, their story began on the broken courts of Compton, California as youngsters. This picture book relates the hard work and adversity the two sisters went through to win championships and reach the pinnacle of tennism while keeping their special bond as sisters and best friends as strong as ever. The illustrations are beautiful and complement the story of the lives of the Williams sisters.
