Beautiful Country by J.R. Thornton
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Chase isn't dealing well with her older brother's death, and his father is absent and too busy making business deals, so he is sent off to Beijing for a year to play tennis. While there, not much happens unfortunately, so there isn't an incentive to keep reading. While the author drew on his own tennis playing in China when he was young, there wasn't much of a conflict in the novel. However, I loved reading about Beijing--took me back to visiting there last year.
