The events in this novel just makes me sick to my stomach, it's just so horrible. But, the book was extremely good. In the beginning, the book really isn't that harsh. But when Operation Smellika starts up. I hate it. Lexie, Peyton, and the rest of the girls on the squad are people you will hate. At first you'll just dislike Ellika, I mean she really is annoying. But Lexie, Peyton, and the squad do some much horrible stuff you'll get so frustrated with the book, you get as annoyed as Ellika herself is. The problems are huge. We deal with Peyton and her trying to get to the top after trying and making Varsity cheerleading. You'll like Peyton, Peyton is the good girl but she gets so over the top with trying to be best buds with the prettiest girl in school, Lexie, you start hating her. (I just have a feeling this above paragraph doesn't make sense, tell me in a comment if it doesn't. Thanks.)
Can I say how much I love the title? Swimming with the Sharks is a perfect title. I *heart* it!
