I am Lou Brown:

Social outcast, precocious failure, 5'10" and still growing.

I was on the fast track to the Olympic superstardom.

Now, I'm training boys too cool to talk to me. In a sport I just made up. In a fish tank.

My life has quickly become very weird.

Nat Luurtsema's YA debut is side-splittingly funny and painfully true to anyone who's just trying to figure out how they fit into the world.

Editorial Reviews

"Filled with slapstick antics, this lighthearted story of 15-year-old Louise Brown, a down-on-her-luck swimmer, deserves to make a splash with readers."-Publishers Weekly"A fun story with well-rounded characters whom readers will root for."-School Library Journal"Lou's voice is irreverent and self-deprecating."-Horn Book"This story is excellent at illustrating self-reliance and the power of friendship. A welcome addition to any middle or high school fiction collection, Goldfish proves that talent does not define a person and helping others is worth more than gold medals. This book will appeal to all readers."--VOYA"Readers will root for Lou as she realizes that failure isn't the end of the world."--Booklist
