Matt Gratton and his two best friends, Sean and Coop, always set themselves a summertime goal. This year’s? To see a real-live naked girl for the first time. As far as Matt is concerned, they’d have better luck finding the lost city of Atlantis. But seeing a girl in the buff starts to seem like child’s play compared to the other summertime goal Matt sets for himself: to swim the 100-yard butterfly (the hardest stroke known to God or man) in order to impress Kelly West, the hot new girl. So what if he can’t manage a single lap, let alone four? He’s got the whole summer to perfect his technique. What could possibly go wrong?

“Raunchy (but mildly so) hilarity ensues.” -People Magazine

“Serves up jokes and gross-outs in the style of filmmakers like Judd Apatow....Boys will probably love it. This one did.” -The New York Times Book Review

“Hilariously raucous scenes stuff its pages.” -Los Angeles Times

About the Author:

Don Calame is an accomplished screen-writer who has worked with Marvel Studios and the Disney Channel, among others. About Swim the Fly, he says, “This novel began as a short piece I wrote several years ago about an incident that happened to me when I was a teenager on the swim team. (Yes, I have the collection of green fifth-place ribbons to prove it.) I tucked the story away and promptly forgot about it until my wife gently nudged me — thirty-six times — to expand it into a book. I’m grateful she was so persistent, because I’ve never had so much fun writing something in my life.” Don Calame was born in New York and now lives in British Columbia with his wife, his stepson, and their two dogs

From AudioFile:

High school swimmer Matt Gratton attempts to impress his smoking-hot teammate Kelly by volunteering for the hundred-yard butterfly. Matt and his friends Sean and Coop are equally dedicated to their quest to see a live naked woman. Narrator Nick Podehl frankly chronicles cross-dressing, laxative-induced explosions, and sexual slang with a veracity teenage boys won't question. He delivers hilarious exploits while avoiding caricatures, despite Calame's calamitous plot twists. Podehl handles large chunks of dialogue even as he enlivens Matt's first-person narration and frequent internal musings. Hand this over to a shock-proof teenage boy and watch his expression change from incredulity to amusement as he hears about Matt's Speedo-snapping summer. C.A.
