The fantasy novel, which goes on sale Tuesday, centers around a 12-year-old girl who is passionate about tennis and tries to win a tournament to help save her father’s orphanage. The story—which is written by Annie Matthew and created by Bryant—is set in a fictional place called Nova, where magic helps Legacy find extra powers in her game.

“At the beginning of my last season that’s when I started writing,” he said. “That’s when I started really executing what was going to come next. Having four daughters at home it was like, I need to create content for my children.”

“I wanted to take something that had a fantasy appeal to it and connect that to sports,” Bryant said. “Tennis has those qualities, those challenges. If I’m trying to teach [my daughters] how to navigate through society as they get older, what are some sports that can really teach them?”

There are specific things we can all do help make the school year successful…

Provide yourself and your child with a comfort level of safety. Attend parent teacher conferences and be engaged in your child’s education. Purchase the kind of supplies they’ll need for the year. If finances are an issue, check with your local school district to get a list of non-profit organizations prepared to help.
