Girl Out of Water by Nat Luurtsema

28513482.

Lou Brown’s life is going down the pan. Best friend Hannah sailed through the Olympic time trials and is off to her fancy-pants new swim training school, while Lou’s own failure to qualify leaves her without a hobby – or a friend.

As Lou tries to navigate her post-swim world, a chance encounter with three boys with stars in their eyes takes her life in a surprising new direction. One that leads to a crazy world of underwater somersaults, talent show auditions, bitchy girls and one great big load of awkward boy chat.

How did I get the book? Received from publisher in exchange for an honest review

Genre: Contemporary

Review: The acronym “LOL” is used (in my opinion) much too often, when you’re actually not laughing aloud – however in the case of Nat Luurtsema’s YA debut I can honestly say that Girl Out of Water is an LOL book. I laughed, giggled and chuckled my way through Lou’s mishaps.

Girl Out of Water is a feel-good book. Lou, our heroine of misadventure, is both a funny narrator (like stated this book make me laugh a lot) and very relatable. I really liked her, there are some ridiculous things that happen in this book and because of Lou it works. I’m not sure I would have been quite as invested if I hadn’t connected Lou the way I did. I also adore her family.

Reading Girl Out of Water from start to finish was a treat. I’m adding this book to my permanent “if you need cheering up” recommendations.

Recommend it?
