The Lovereading4Kids comment
January 2010 Guest Editor Sophie Mckenzie on Diving In by Kate Cann
'Kate Cann's books opened my eyes to how accessible and engaging teenage writing these days can be. I love the confessional style with which she tells her stories and this book in particular was a huge influence on my own writing.'
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. And then he asks her out, and the dream becomes reality. Art is strong and powerful, and he's also quite pushy. Just what is Coll getting into?
'Accurately describes teenage emotions and crises'
'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...'
'A good meaty read - an intelligent book with intelligent characters'
'It is the realism and sensitivity of the writing that impresses most'
'Very true to life and realistic. A must-read'
.co.uk 'Some of the best writing about love and sex that I have ever read in a book for young people...both emotionally stunning and morally unshakeable.
