A young man under orders from his chiropractor to take up swimming for the benefit of his back. He goes through the motions like a surly teenager until one week he meets a girl who offers him advice on improving his technique. As our young hero becomes more proficient at swimming he grows more confident. He is clearly smitten with his unofficial tutor though we are unsure of her feelings towards him and this is where the drama grows within the story.

A beautifully paced book, low on dialogue its the illustrations that draw you in. They are in a word, stunning. Almost all of the book is set in a swimming pool, so if your like us and dig those delicious Aqua marines tones you’ll love this book.

It is a book of gentle observations with a thought provoking anti-hollywood ending.
