Swim. Eat. Shower. School. Snack. Swim. Swim. Swim. Dinner. Homework. Bed. Repeat.

All of Maggie’s focus and free time is spent swimming. She’s not only striving to earn scholarships—she’s training to qualify for the Olympics. It helps that her best friend, Levi, is also on the team and cheers her on. But Levi’s already earned an Olympic try out, so she feels even more pressure to succeed. And it’s not until Maggie’s away on a college visit that she realizes how much of the “typical” high school experience she’s missed by being in the pool.

Not one to shy away from a challenge, Maggie decides to squeeze the most out of her senior year. First up? Making out with a guy. And Levi could be the perfect candidate. After all, they already spend a lot of time together. But as Maggie slowly starts to uncover new feelings for Levi, how much is she willing to lose to win?

Miranda Kenneally has been a favorite of mine since I read Catching Jordan years ago. To this day, Catching Jordan is my favorite of her books, but Coming Up for Air is a close second for me. I loved how this story, which I heard is the last one in the Hundred Oaks series, kind of mirrors Jordan's story. Once I turned the last page it definitely felt like we came full circle. 

I'm such a fan of best friends to more romances, and even before they started the more stuff, I loved the relationship between Maggie and Levi. They were so fun and adorable together. Everyone should be so lucky to have such an awesome best friend. This one revolves around the sport of swimming, and I know next to nothing about competitive swimming, so it was cool to learn a little bit while I was reading. I had no idea it was so intense. Competitive swimmers have some serious dedication.

This was another Miranda Kenneally win for me. Loved the whole story and the epilogue at the end!

  3. This is my first book of Kenneally's, and it won't be my last! I really enjoyed the sports backdrop and the seriousness with which the two main characters weighed their relationship against their goals and commitments. Very inspiring model of self-discipline and responsibility, for people of any age.

  6. It´s a very personal book which broaches the issue of a normal childhood combined with the fear of the therefore upcoming World War. Moreover he uses the example of George Bowling to narrate the uprooting of the lower middle class after World War One, which failed by searching for a way out. All in all it`s a very interesting and especially emotional book.

  7. As with Orwell’s other books, I loved his endearing trademark of dry wit and humor in his powerful storytelling. This novel would probably resonate with anyone who has ever experienced an urge for an escapist indulgence. I would have given this book five stars had it not been for the description of wicked little boys killing baby birds for fun.
