The sweeping and affecting coming-of-age story of a young athlete by the internationally award-winning and bestselling author of The Slap At fifteen, Danny Kelly is living a typical middle class Melbourne life: his mother is single, a hairdresser, and raising three kids in a tiny flat. Danny spends most afternoons with his best friend Demet, listening to Nirvana records and dreaming of the future. But there's one thing that sets Danny apart from his peers: he is an extraordinarily talented swimmer who has the potential to swim for Australia in the Olympics. His ability lifts him into a new and unrecognizable world, an elite school where his classmates' families own summer estates and where the competition is fiercer than any he has faced before. Twenty years later, Danny is in Scotland with his partner, reflecting on the life his talents and mistakes have sculpted, when a family member from his past issues a cry for help, and Danny must decide if he's truly ready to return home.
