The Kings are Already Here -- Garret Freymann-Weyr

This is a great book for anyone that has a passion.  More specifically, a passion that drives you.  It's about a friendship that grows between a ballerina questioning her future and a chess player looking for a new coach.  It's worth reading.

That said, if you're only going to read one book by this author, I'd read My Heartbeart instead.  I read that one years ago, and it's still with me.  This one will fade much more quickly.
