The Harper Effect is an outstanding debut YA novel set in the world of professional tennis. Caught in a love triangle (or, is that a love square …?), Harper Hunter has big decisions to make – choices that will impact her career as a player, her friendships, her sister and, ultimately, her entire family. This is an intriguing tale of young love, persistence and following your heart. Congratulations to the Sunshine Coast’s Taryn Bashford. The Harper Effect was many years in the making but, with persistence and belief, Taryn has served up an ace!
