Coming Up For Air- Review 


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 sacrifice in the water to win at love?

This story was a cute teenage type love story. Maggie and Levi have been best friends forever, and one day Maggie decides she wants him to teach her how to hook up with boys. 

Between swimming and her weekly meet up with her friends, she hasn’t really had time for boyfriends. But what is supposed to be lessons turns into something more. 

Her swimming is put on the line as she tries to figure out where she wants to go in life- in terms of Levi. 

This story jumped around a lot. It covered a lot of events and time in one chapter. There were times I was confused on what was happening, but I still wasn’t able to put it down and stop reading. 

I was happy with the overall story of their love and lives, and I think all in all it was a great book.
