Diving in by Kate Cann
Coll thinks the boy she sees swimming every Thursday night is completely gorgeous - long and lean, powerful and strong. He becomes the fantasy that takes her out of her ordinary day-to-day existence.

'Colette's hippy-gone-to-middle-aged seed mother riding in to do battle with her daughter's would-be seducer and his parents is a treat...'
