    One thought on “Out of Synch”

    1. I received this book for free from Giveaways. A story about the conflicts between a middle school girl who wants to focus on synchronized swimming and her dad who wants her to focus on competitive swim races. Her hard work and dedication prove to be a winning combination for her.

    2. I'm a regular swimmer, not a synchro one, but Katie's story draws the reader into the world of synchronized swimming. After reading her story, I won't wonder again what solo synchronised swimming is supposed to be about - think of it like figure skating.

    3. As this is quite possibly the first and only novel about synchronized swimming (indeed, it's a fading art that many adults may not know much about), Out of Synch is, right away, in a class of its own. The story focuses on the efforts of thirteen-year-old Katie, who dreams of competitive synchronized swimming while her parents want her to choose the more lucrative competitive racing.Her swim team coach believes synchronized swimming is well on its way out, her parents want Katie to focus on a swi [...]

    4. Out of Synch is a really enjoyable story about a young girl's struggles in trying to do what she loves while balancing parents' expectations, grades, and her feelings for a boy. Something that really enjoyed about this story is how much it taught me. I knew absolutely nothing about synchronized swimming, and I don't really think I was ever planning on learning about it. But this book approached a completely new sport to me in an interesting and entertaining light. Warren Firschein made the sport [...]

    5. Katie finds a way to pursue her passion of synchronized swimming while figuring out the ups and downs of her thirteen year old life. The writing has an easy flow with description that make me want to find a pool to start swimming laps. The emotions feel real and I was not surprised to read that the author had an 11 year old daughter of his own while writing this book. Page 129 is clever as Katie wonders, "Why can't someone write a sports book for girls? Maybe one about how a girl tries really ha [...]

    6. I really enjoyed Out of Synch by Warren Firschein. It's the story of Katie Phillips, a thirteen-year-old swimmer who dreams of going to Nationals with her Synchronized Swimming Team but is being pushed by her father to place all of her energy into her traditional swimming. Katie's struggle trying to do something she loves when her family wants her to go another way is something that all tweens and teens can relate to, even if they aren't swimmers.

    7. I think this is a good book for middle schoolers and deals with many issues that are prevalent today. The balance between sports and schoolwork, effects of concussion, bullying and overbearing parents are all incorporated into this book about a girl who has a passion for synchronized swimming. I received a complimentary copy of this book via for review.

    8. I won this book on to read for an honest review. My teen daughter and I both read this book. She enjoyed it a lot. I thought it was good too.

    9. I received this book from to provide an honest review. This book was a very enjoyable read. The book revolved around the sport of synchronized swimming. Katie faces a multitude of problems as she tries to make Nationals in her age group. She has great friends, a budding interest in boys, a jerk for an older brother, and overbearing parents that at least mean well. All in all, Katie feels the pressure to compete as a race swimmer. Very interesting to discover how she overcomes the pressure to su [...]
