Stotan! gets 5 stars from Phoebe

Stotan!, by Chris Crutcher, is a book based around the universal theme of search for self. In this novel, four boys are asked by their coach to participate in a rigorous training regimen to prepare for their coming swim season. As a swimmer myself, I was able to identify with the boys, and understand their feelings. However, this book isn't only about swimming. It also describes the real problems the boys have to cope with, and how they come together to achieve their dreams. 5 stars
