Waiting on Wednesday #6 - Swim the Fly by Don Calame

Fifteen-year-old Matt Gratton and his two best friends, Coop and Sean, always set themselves a summertime goal. This year's? To see a real-live naked girl for the first time — quite a challenge, given that none of the guys has the nerve to even ask a girl out on a date. But catching a girl in the buff starts to look easy compared to Matt's other summertime aspiration: to swim the 100-yard butterfly (the hardest stroke known to God or man) as a way to impress Kelly West, the sizzling new star of the swim team.

Bad cover. Funny story line. 
Plus, I'm a swimmer so I like that aspect of it. 
And seriously? A book that focuses around seeing a naked girl has got to be at least sorta good, right? Right.

  1. Nice challenge, they obviously don't go to the beaches in Europe, there's plenty there.

    Sounds a fun read.

  2. I think this sounds funny too, and yeah, not the best cover..but i suppose it COULD BE eye-catching. haha


  3. I agree about the bad cover. Sounds funny and great for a guy. LOL.

  4. Hello fellow swimmer! :)
    I think this sounds good, only because it's about swimming. Otherwise, it sounds a little odd haha.


Pour your heart out. :)
