Girl Underwater by Claire Kells – Book Review

This is the story of 19 year-old Avery Delacorte, a college swimmer who along with a team mate and three little boys are the only survivors after a plane crash. They must find a way to survive snowstorms and extreme cold with limited food and resources. They are recused and everything seems just peachy.  However Avery cannot swim again. Not only that, she suffers PTSD, although she insists she has no problems.

Kells writes the novel with a back-and-forth from the plane crash and it’s immediate aftermath, and Avery trying to deal with the effects later on. You really want to know exactly what happened after the plane crash, since Avery has been so traumatized by her own actions. I found this book hard to put down. I really liked the characters and wanted to know what it was that Avery thought she had done wrong.

I won’t give you any hints, since the book is definitely worth reading and I hope you do to.
