GOLDFISH, by Nat Luurtsema


The story: When Lou misses out on her chance to train as an Olympic swimmer, she feels that life as she knows it is about to end (and she’s right). What she never saw coming was the chance to coach a boys’ synchronized swimming team starring three of the hottest guys at her school. She also never foresaw that she’d be breaking into an aquarium, busting her friend out of training camp, or ending up swimming on the guys’ team herself. Or making up friends. Or getting a boyfriend. Stuff like that just sneaks up on you sometimes.

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: This laugh-out-loud story not only has some hilarious moments as Lou learns that things really aren’t as bad as they seem, and that good luck can come in strange packages.
