Swim Season Tour and Review!

Sometimes winning is everything. Champion swimmer Aerin Keane is ready to give up her dreams of college swimming and a shot at the Olympics. As she starts senior year in her third high school, Aerin's determined to leave her family troubles behind and be like all the other girls at Two Rivers. She's got a new image and a new attitude. She doesn’t want to win anymore. She's swimming for fun, no longer the freak who wins every race, every title, only to find herself alone. But when her desire to be just one of the girls collides with her desire to be the best Two Rivers has ever seen, will Aerin sacrifice her new friendships to break a longstanding school record that comes with a $50,000 scholarship?

This was a fantastic book about coming of age, learning to push past your own fear, and to not settle with mediocre when you can be great. I story was not rushed but was still captivating. It was great to follow along with girls as they grew, learned, and pressed each other to do better. It wasn't a book about some big adventure, but rather the realities of every day life and how they change you and who you are and how you think. I found myself eager to see what would happen and how the characters would react. The "mean girl" wasn't the typical cheerleader and her motivations were unique. The competition between the girls as they learned to work together, get past their own petty divisions, and push each other was really fun, and very real. I enjoyed this book. I would highly encourage it. It wasn't about getting the guy and proving you are cool, it was about learning who you are and what you want. Yes there is some minor teen romance, but it was to the side and that made it really unique and special. Absolutely worth the read!

During swim season you can find Marianne Sciucco, a dedicated Swim Mom for ten years, at one of many Skyline Conference swim meets cheering for her daughter and her team, the Mount Saint Mary College Knights.
Marianne is not a nurse who writes but a writer who happens to be a nurse. A lover of words and books, she dreamed of becoming an author when she grew up but became a nurse to avoid poverty. She later brought her two passions together and writes about the intricate lives of people struggling with health and family issues.
Her debut novel "Blue Hydrangeas," an Alzheimer’s love story, is a Kindle bestseller, IndieReader Approved, a BookWorks featured book, and a Library Journal Self-e Selection. She also has two short stories available on Kindle, "Ino's Love" and "Collection.”
A native Bostonian, Marianne lives in New York’s Hudson Valley, and when not writing works as a campus nurse at a community college.
