Book Description

May 1 2004 Lorimer Sports Stories (Book 67)
Victoria Miller is a hard-working member of a Montreal swim team, who has been training six days a week for four years. That's what it takes to keep up with her teammate and rival, Svetlana. Most of the other swimmers are spurred on by their parents -- but not Victoria. In fact, her mother doesn't seem to be interested in much of anything these days, and her father has buried himself in work. When the family situation takes a grim turn, Victoria finds help -- in and out of the pool -- from the person she least expects.

Product Description

Review

"Polak seems to have mastered the pre-teen voice to a tee. Flip Turn will keep young readers going right through to the last page." (Marlene Eisner The Suburban)

"Author Monique Polak has managed to pack a lot of drama into this novel... She has clearly done her research. The in-pool portions of this story are decidedly refreshing." (Bernie Goedhart Montreal Gazette)

"Kids will appreciate Polak's book for its frank writing and honest characters. Her characters are flawed but utterly human, and their moral struggles are ones that ring true with teens. This would be a good choice for reluctant readers." (Kelly Di Domenico Montreal Families)

"This is an enjoyable read both as a sports story and as realistic fiction. There is enough about swimming to entertain sports enthusiasts, as well as a compelling human aspect that will hook most readers." (Resource Links)

"Flip Turn would be an excellent addition to school, public and personal libraries. The swimming theme draws a sports reader while the relationship theme would appeal to a realistic fiction reader. Highly recommended." (CM: Canadian Review of Materials)
