    Another exciting RL book!

    I wasn't disappointed with the next book in the series. Although I preferred 1 &2 over this book, I still just love the all RL books. When Cassidy Brewster takes a fall, she'll do anything to get back to the top of her game. This is unfortunate and leads her to make bad choices. This book shows problems that female athletes have and it led me to believe maybe females weren't meant for such sports. But this is only the conclusion I made myself, not the author, because Cassidy loves the sport. She has a difficult dad, and though I liked Rafe, a little poor taste in guys. It was hard for me to like her family (make it impossible) except for her mom. These are the cons about the book, but the pro is, like all RL books, her road to salvation was amazing!! I can't wait to read the next one.

    This novel is young adult general fiction with a romance. The story was fast-paced, and the suspense grew as things got worse and worse in Cassidy's relationships at school and with her own family. Suspense also came from wondering if she'd get well enough to play again and, if so, if they'd override the rules to let her play again. I could hardly put the book down.The world-building was also excellent, with the details about the setting, girls high school basketball, and physical therapy bringing the story alive in my imagination. The characters were realistic as were the pressures Cassidy faced. However, I thought the ending was a bit unrealistically tidy.I was also concerned by the "bad boy" as Cassidy's romantic match. Cassidy's father was portrayed as unreasonable when he expressed concern about her friendship with the "trouble" kids. Granted, his stated reasons were bad ones (appearances), but I'd have a talk with my child if they started hanging out with "the bad crowd." Though it works out for Cassidy in the novel, peer pressure usually works the other way around in real life.Christians and non-Christians were portrayed realistically with both the good and the bad. Cassidy finds a book, "RL," that's like a Bible and gives her guidance about her situation. The personalized & paraphrased stories seemed to be more loosely based on the Bible verses than previously, and I sometimes felt like the wording or conclusion was changed a bit to make it fit the author's point. Also, this time I usually didn't see how the stories even related to Cassidy's situation. Granted, everything was tied together into an a-ha moment near the end, but I prefer how the RL book was handled in the previous two books.There was a very minor amount of bad language in the "he cussed" or "Don't say it!" style. There was no sex. Overall, I'd recommend this novel as well-written, clean reading.I received this book as a review copy from the publisher.
