Alex, Tessa Duder
A YA novel set before cellphones that still packs plenty of punch today!  I've had a copy of this novel for a long time, and been meaning to read it.  Once I got into it, I welcomed the opportunity to settle into a swimming story.  It's different, and it's compelling.  I appreciated it being set in New Zealand and I enjoyed finding it easy to read.  I wouldn't rank it as a marvel of wordsmithery or life-changing read for me, but I value that it's a unique contribution to YA lit.
