An uplifting picture book biography about the unwavering bond between sisters and tennis legends Venus and Serena Williams.

In 1989, two opponents faced off in their first tennis tournament. But they weren’t just rivals, they were also sisters. Sisters who would go on to become legends.

The first sisters in professional tennis ever to be ranked #1 and #2 in the world. The first sisters to both reach the top of the rankings, and do it together. The only sisters to ever win Grand Slam titles and Olympic gold medals together.

From their beginnings on a crumbling Compton tennis court to their shining achievements on the most prestigious stages, Game, Set, Sisters!: The Story of Venus and Serena Williams tells the inspirational story of two of the most beloved athletes in history and how despite being served the most challenging hardships in life—illness, family, loss, racism—they always continued to swing back stronger.
