COMMUNITY REVIEWS

If you are not a chess fan, take a pass on this book submitted by hiker15 on July 21, 2021, 5:02pm Novel is about an orphan girl who becomes a chess prodigy. The majority of the book is about her entering tournaments and (of course) winning. And how angry she gets when she doesn't win. And how she searches out all possible strategies to win.

If you like chess and are familiar with the various chess strategies, you will probably enjoy this book. If you are not familiar with chess strategies and don't really care about them, you will find this book tedious.
