    Streamline was definitely a roller coaster for me. The story mostly revolved around Leo, who's the main protagonist. Leo is a professional swimmer at his high school. He has a swimmer girlfriend, Audery, who are both on the team. Leo competes with his friends, and leads a normal school life. Through reading, I never expected the horror that awaits him at home. Despite it's romantic and cute cover, Streamline was without doubt a contemporary novel with an intense, dire, and potent plot.
    Leo's dad works in the navy, therefore his personality can be considered as very cold. Leo's house feels like a military itself. His dad is very strict, to the point that if Leo makes a mistake, his father abuses him. Jennifer Lane clearly describes the thoughts and feelings of an abuser and the abused. Reading the detailed content made it very believable and realistic. The story at first was very interesting, but then it felt draggy. I felt that some parts were too detailed, that I felt like just skimming through the book. It the story was 300 p ages instead of 500, I would have probably enjoyed it more. I felt there were many unnecessary parts. Leo is a swimmer, why did he have to go to the army? That part totally bored me, and I wished the author didn't write the story that way. The parts in the navy were too strict and boring for me. At some point, everything just felt too depressing for me. I did hope it had more fun parts in it.
    Overall, I really do think that Jennifer Lane did a great job with her research and writing this story. Though if she excluded some parts, I know for sure I would have enjoyed it much more! Streamline is definitely a story that will open up your eyes and teach you a little bit more about life. It was a great read, and I recommend it to the contemporary readers out there!
