Swimming Sweet Arrow turned out to be an excellent book. It has some extremely rough material that is definately directed towards a mature audience, and some might find the raw sexual content and dramatic issues hard to swallow, but others might appreciate the gutwrenching honesty this book has. Maureen Gibbon did not try to candy coat anything about this young girl's coming of age story, she told it how it was. I like the fact that someone can write fiction that isn't so narrow minded even if it deals with telling a story that some might be too uptight to handle. It was VERY VERY well written.
