Publisher's Description

In Tournaments, Cocoa & One Wrong Move, book three of bestselling author Nancy Rue’s Real Life series for teen girls, sixteen-year-old Cassidy’s promising basketball future is threatened when she finds herself a victim of Female Athlete Syndrome. Under constant pressure from her bickering parents, at odds with her brother, and terrified that her place as star on the team will be usurped by a rival, Cassidy makes a bad decision after injuring her knee. When her plan backfires, she finds herself in the study hall for the school’s delinquents. Amidst the problems in her life, Cassidy discovers the mysterious RL book. New goals replace the old ones as Cassidy begins to overcome perfectionism and discover the personal power that comes only from God.

Author Bio

Nancy Rue has written over 100 books for girls, is the editor of the Faithgirlz Bible, and is a popular speaker and radio guest with her expertise in tween and teen issues. She and husband, Jim, have raised a daughter of their own and now live in Tennessee.

Nancy Rue's Tournaments, Cocoa & One Wrong Move, the third book in the Real Life series, tells the story of Cassidy, a female high school basketball team captain, whose seemingly perfect life is ripped apart when she takes pills to quicken the healing of a knee injury. Thrown off her team and forced into interaction with "low-lifes," Cassidy must repeatedly face the fact that everything is not about her and that no one is defined by one mistake, however big or small.

The book begins well, with narration of Cassidy's last game and her injury as the buzzer sounds. As the story progresses, Cassidy's knee injury is described and diagnosed. Right before she begins taking the pills, Cassidy happens upon the Real Life book. A new study hall and an art project force Cassidy to converse with Rafe, a self-classified loser who seems focused on robbing her of her sanity.

Tournaments, Cocoa & One Wrong Move has a theme described by Proverbs 18:12 as, "Before his downfall a man’s heart is proud, but humility comes before honor." Cassidy continually is forced to give up her pride.

The progression of Cassidy's story is interesting, with problems mounting on problems, and a few subplots running with the main one, but the overall writing is disappointing. True enough, by the novel's conclusion Cassidy has become humble rather than proud, but her new romantic relationship with Rafe is rather premature for her age and rather ancillary to the purpose of the book.

Tournaments, Cocoa & One Wrong Move has a nice idea behind it, and its message is genuine and worthwhile, but this book doesn't seem to resonate with younger readers. – Meredith Sell,
