4 out of 5 stars!
I would like to thank Maximum Pop Books, Walker Books and the author Nat Luurtsema for sending me a copy of Girl Out Of Water in exchange for an honest review.
For any fans of Louise Rennison, this book is perfect for you! It’s heartwarming humor makes for a great teen read full of mishaps and mischief. Lou is a fifteen year old trying out for Team GB and the national swimming camp but when she fails to qualify and her best friend Hannah makes it, she finds herself friendless and coachless all in one go. She tries to make friends but on making friends with three handsome boys (Pete, Roman, Gabe), trying to coach them in synchro swimming turns into a disaster-filled roller-coaster of a ride.
I really like Nat’s writing style and how the story wrapped up towards the end, I was giggling at the thought of synchro swimming going wrong throughout. This story definitely made me smile and I would recommend to girls age 12+. I had no major issues with the story and felt that Lou was a quirky but caring character.
