Geese Are Never Swans

We rated this book:


This is a good story about a swimmer trying to prove that he isn’t like his brother. Geese are Never Swans is about a teenager named Gus. Gus loves to swim, and he is out to prove that he is different from his brother, who committed suicide after failing to make the national swim team. Gus is angry at almost everyone and everything, and he uses his rage to fuel him as he works to his goal. I liked that Gus was determined to reach his goal, and I also like that he gets along with his mother later in the book. The setting of the book mostly takes place at swim practice and at Gus’s home. Most of the interactions are between Gus and his coach. This is a book about a young swimmer trying to prove himself through hard work and determination. Overall, I found the book kind of boring, and I didn’t care for the foul language throughout the book. The story lacked excitement and didn’t keep my interest. This book may relate to competitive athletes, and I would recommend it to young adults.
