'Coming Up for Air’ a title that pulled me right in. The title is definitely perfect for the storyline and creates the perfect mood. This book is about Maggi and Levi. They have a perfect friendship and are amazing swimmers. Since Maggie has spent all her time in the pool, she doesn’t get enough time to do the ‘normal’ high school stuff. First, she decides to make out with a guy and Levi is perfect. But slowly Maggie starts falling in love with Levi, but the new relationship that arises creates problems. Both of them are trying to figure out themselves and this new relationship. I love the how easy it is to connect with this book and the author uses the perfect teen voice to connect with us. The conflict was solved practically and not in a way which makes us think if it is just a fairytale or could happen in real life. The author’s work is really authentic and original, which captures the audience attention. It shows how sometimes keeping your personal and professional lives separate is almost impossible. Perfect for teens, looking for a light read or teens who are just trying to figure themselves out and trying to keep their life together. I wouldn’t recommend it to someone who likes reading but has little time as this is a book for someone has lots of time and reads on a regular basis! - Manraaj
