Girl Out of Water

Publisher: Walker Books

Lou Brown's swimming ambitions sank without trace when she failed in the Olympic time trials that sent her best friend off to High Performance Training Camp.

Fifteen years old, 5 foot 10 (and still growing), left at home with no hobby and no friend, she struggles to fit in with even the least cool kids at school. When an accidental encounter leads to her coaching three of the coolest guys around in their quest to get on TV, Lou finds her life descending into chaos and craziness.

With plenty of genuine laugh-out-loud moments and a zany plot, Lou's story is a hilarious, yet poignant, exploration of the highs and lows of navigating teenage relationships and social expectations. Contemporary and engaging with believable characters and a refreshingly original voice.
