Did I enjoy this book: I did enjoy this book. I read it every free chance I had.
Finn was a quiet, studious girl looking to go to medical school to fulfill her, and her mother's, dream. She knew her life. She knew that her father was dead, that her mother was the only family she had. Finn knew she didn't have many friends but that her end goal was the most important thing for her to focus on. Oh my, how things changed for Finn! The Summer I Learned to Dive was a wonderful coming-of-age young adult book.
Finn learned a lot of things about her life, her desires, her dreams, her family immediately after she graduated from high school. I could not imagine what she went through emotionally but Ms. McCrimmon did a fabulous job portraying Finn to the reader. I was with her and I felt with her and I wanted her to change for the better.
I enjoyed Finn's transformation. I think a lot of it came from her new surroundings and the new people she met. Jessie is a sweet kid. He has had a tough life that could have broken him but he has risen above it and is a great character. I really enjoyed Jessie. He was a good guy all around. The grandparents were wonderful, just as grandparents in South Carolina can be pictured. They were two loving people who I could picture in my head. They were well-written characters that I want to know more about.
All-in-all, this was a great read. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Would I recommend it: I would recommend this book. This was a good coming-of-age story for YA readers.
Will I read it again: I will not.

unfold in real life. It's a great journey of a young adult standing up
for herself and learning how a secret could really change her life.
