Swim the Fly by Don Calame



Matt and his friends set a goal each summer. This summer, the goal is to see a naked girl in real life — no pictures, no internet. Aside from his misadventures encountered while searching for an elusive naked girl, Matt is also struggling to impress his swim-team crush, Kelly. In an attempt to get the girl, Matt volunteers to swim the fly at his team’s meet. The only problem is that the fly is the hardest swimming stroke, and Matt has never competed in the event before. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Matt’s summer is filled with hilarity, near-misses, and some serious consequences.

If you’re looking for a hilarious read, this is it. The plot is a bit (ok, a lot) predictable, but the characters are incredibly funny. I laughed out loud more than once when reading the book (and I don’t do that often). Pick this up if you’re in the mood for a light, not challenging read that will keep you entertained.
