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.

Nat Luurtsema is a BAFTA-nominated screenwriter, stand-up comic, BAFTA Rocliffe alumni, member of the sketch group Jigsaw, actor, author of Cuckoo in the Nest, and writer for BBC Radio 4, BBC3, and Channel 4. Great driver, average waitress, terrible singer.

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
