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)
