In her children's story, The Last Point, author Alana Josephson gives an autobiographical account of an important tennis match, sharing with young readers the importance of perseverance in sports as well as in life.

Having already won the local tournament, nine-year-old Alana continues on to play in the regional championships, excited for her chance to win there, as well. But can she win when her opponent in the final match starts cheating? She's faced with an even bigger challenge: Can she overcome her anger and win?

Due to her rival's lies, her shot at the trophy begins to fade and she faces the age-old question: Can the honest player prevail? Wanting to be a good sport, she must up her game, while keeping her temper in check. Can Alana persevere through her frustration to win the trophy?

By writing her personal experience with cheating as a children's book, Josephson shows that it's never too early to learn that cheating is harmful, or that good sportsmanship is an attitude worth applying to any situation you might face.

Alana Josephson is a writer who specializes in short stories and poetry based on her real-life experiences. She likes how stories can share important ideas like honesty and perseverance in a way that connects with everybody. Her next writing goal is to publish a poetry book for young adults. Josephson played tennis as a child, winning trophies in her local and regional Little Mo competitions in 2007, at the age of nine. She has since retired from competitive tennis in order to pursue ballet and aerial yoga.
