Stars in her eyes, water in her ears, boys on her nerves... Lou Brown is out of her depth. A thoroughly British teen comedy starring a hilariously flawed heroine with a quip for every occasion - perfect for fans of Holly Smale, Holly Bourne, Caitlin Moran and Sophie Kinsella. Lou Brown's life is going down the pan. Best friend Hannah sailed through the Olympic time trials and is off to her fancy-pants new swim training school, while Lou's own failure to qualify leaves her without a hobby - or a friend. As Lou tries to navigate her post-swim world, a chance encounter with three boys with stars in their eyes takes her life in a surprising new direction. One that leads to a crazy world of underwater somersaults, talent show auditions, bitchy girls and one great big load of awkward boy chat.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This irreverently funny debut by BAFTA-nominated screenwriter Nat Luurtsema is brutally honest and truly LOL - read it and weep (with laughter) by the pool. * Family Traveller *
...a brilliant, funny mix of swimming, boys, and a TV talent show. * The Express *
The ensuing drama is pin-sharp in its observation of teenage angst and pressures. A perfect summer read for teenage girls. * Daily Mail *
The Louise Rennison of the next generation. * Rachel Kennedy, YA-BBERINGBOOKLOVER Blogspot *
"If you loved Four Weddings and a Funeral or Bridget Jones' Diary then this book is for you. I really enjoyed this story and hope that Nat Luurtsema writes more in this vein." * The School Librarian *
"I really enjoyed this book, as I personally understood the main character, Lou Brown. [...] Her funny, outgoing and bubbly personality has great effects on the reader. [...] I would definitely recommend this book to any reader of any age." * Teen titles, reader review *

“Synchronised swimming, social awkwardness and silliness; prepare to laugh out loud”

I have this idea that certain books demand to be read in particular places, seasons, towns. I had this notion that I'd be able to read Girl Out of Water at the side of the pool somewhere. Instead I had to settle... More
