Judy Blume and I have something in common. How cool is that? We both loved Swimming, by Nicola Keegan. You’ve read my take on the book (and if you were at ALA you saw it on the Staff Picks table as one of my selections) now here’s Judy’s:
“I loved Swimming. It’s the most original novel I’ve read all year. I can’t get Pip’s voice out of my mind. Give yourself a treat this summer—read this book.”
Hear from Nicola Keegan herself as she explains the concept of the book to a reviewer panel.
Also, you can read the first chapter of the book and download a reading group guide on the publisher’s website.
I hope Ms. Blume and I stand in good company and you’ve all ordered your copies of this book. If not, what are you waiting for?
