9780099523956: Swimming

For Pip, swimming is a necessity. With a hopeless mother, a drug-addled sister and a best friend more interested in her own love-life than in friendship, swimming provides a welcome escape. But as Olympic stardom beckons, Pip must decide whether her future lies in the water or on land. Swimming is a novel about growing up, about talent, and about having what it takes to survive.

Review:

"A significant, dazzling debut" (Kate Saunders The Times)

"[A] ravishing first novel...gorgeous" ( New York Times)

"Told with wry, understated compassion, this engrossing novel ponders the challenges of growing up gifted" (Hephzibah Anderson Daily Mail)

"Keegan's vivid, splashy prose and off-the-wall humour suit the story of the harrowing traumas of an adolescence...Swimming's, moving, exhilarating story of love, sport, triumph and loss is pretty much a winner" (Tina Jackson Metro)

"Keegan's shimmering, fluid prose is outwardly playful, yet this is a seriously well-crafted novel" (Catherine Taylor Guardian)

Book Description:

Here is a debut not to be missed from a ferocious, unusual, funny, exuberantly alive new voice in fiction - a coming-of-age story with a dark edge that's reminiscent of Lionel Shriver.
