520    Private lessons. Professional coaches. Specialized camps 
       for sports, math, music, and other fields. Today’s 
       children are pushed to achieve excellence—or else. But at 
       what cost? New York Times bestselling author Douglas 
       Brunt’s third novel, Trophy Son, tells the story of a 
       tennis prodigy, from young childhood to the finals of the 
       US Open, Wimbledon, and other tournaments around the 
       world.  Growing up in the wealthy suburbs of Philadelphia,
       Anton Stratis is groomed to be one thing only: the #1 
       tennis player in the world. Trained relentlessly by his 
       obsessive father, a former athlete who plans every minute 
       of his son’s life, Anton both aspires to greatness and 
       resents its all-consuming demands. Lonely and 
       isolated—removed from school and socialization to focus on
       tennis—Anton explodes from nowhere onto the professional 
       scene and soon becomes one of the top-ranked players in 
       the world, with a coach, a trainer, and an entourage.  But
       as Anton struggles to find a balance between stardom and 
       family, he begins to make compromises—first with himself, 
       then with his health, and finally with the rules of tennis,
       a mix that will threaten to destroy everything he has 
       worked for. Trophy Son offers an inside look at the 
       dangers of extraordinary pressure to achieve, whether in 
       sports or any field, through the eyes of a young man 
       defying his parents’ ambitions as he seeks a life of his
