Independence Day

She won't be taken for granted!By tossing the laundry out the bedroom window, Chessie McCabe announces to her teenage daughters and her husband, Nick–and the rest of Pritchard's Neck–she's on strike until her needs are met. But who could have foreseen what her personal rebellion would dredge up? Certainly not Chessie.Amy Frazier's follow-up book to The Trick To Getting a Mom, set in a quaint Maine fishing village, is honest, funny and impossible to put down.

Amy Frazier (born September 19, 1972 in St. Louis, Missouri) is a professional female tennis player from the United States.She will be most remembered for her longevity on the WTA Tour. In her 20 years on the tour, she manages to play well enough to qualify for major tournaments, though once there she rarely advances to the finals.

She debuted in 1987 and was still an active player as of the 2006 US Open in which she made her 20th consecutive appearance (a record among active players). She has also appeared in 18 Australian Open, 18 Wimbledon, and 15 French Open for a total of 71 Grand Slam appearances (also a record).

Her best showing is a pair of quarterfinal appearances at the 1992 Australian Open and 1995 US Open. She has lost 30 times in the first round of her Grand Slam matches, 18 times in the second round, 15 times in the third round, 6 times in the 4th round, and both of her quarterfinal matches. Her all time Grand Slam record is 73–71. She has over 30 wins against top 10 players and has spent 18 consecutive years in the top 100, the longest continuous span by any female tennis player, ever.

Amy has the distinction of being the last woman Steffi Graf has played against professionally. During the match Steffi retired at never played again.

Amy won 8 career titles and was a finalist 7 times. Being a flat-hitter, Amy excelled on hard courts and was the most successful on the Summer hard court events in California and appeared in 8 finals in two different events in Japan.
