Girl Underwater by Claire Kells
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Oh, the tears! From me!
Think old-school Sarah Dessen and a better Lurlene McDaniel and you've got this dramatic novel that was published adult for some reason.
Nineteen-year-old Avery is a swimmer at a West Coast school and on her way home when her plane crashes. It's traumatic and she spends most of the book recovering and suffering from PTSD. Does she want to swim again? Can she? Can she return to being her normal, shallow self who cares a lot about what people think? Does she still want her boyfriend?
I read this in one day--that tells you how much I liked it!
