Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Did I enjoy this book?
 I really did. I read it every free chance I had, and even though it came in at over 700 Nook pages, it flew.

Even though the story flew, I did skim some parts. I was mostly interested in the swimming aspects of the story. And the swimming aspects of the story–the training, the practices, the meets–were done wonderfully. The school and relationships weren’t quite as important to me . . . or to the story in my opinion. Those parts were a part of Aerin and her story, but the swimming was the focus. I just wanted to see Aerin meet her swim goals, break that record, and do her best. I was a swimmer in high school, the 500 was my race my senior year. So, I definitely felt a connection with Aerin.

 

Would I recommend it? If you are/were a swimmer in high school, you will enjoy this book. It did bring back memories. If you like YA books that aren’t focused on romance, then this would be a good one for you. If you are curious about competitive swimming, read Swim Season.

About the book – from Goodreads: 
Sometimes winning is everything.

Champion swimmer Aerin Keane is ready to give up her dreams of college swimming and a shot at the Olympics. As she starts senior year in her third high school, Aerin’s determined to leave her family troubles behind and be like all the other girls at Two Rivers. She’s got a new image and a new attitude. She doesn’t want to win anymore. She’s swimming for fun, no longer the freak who wins every race, every title, only to find herself alone.

But when her desire to be just one of the girls collides with her desire to be the best Two Rivers has ever seen, will Aerin sacrifice her new friendships to break a longstanding school record that comes with a $50,000 scholarship?
