Publisher's summary

A New York Times notable book and winner of the Northern California Book Award for Best Short Fiction, these nine brave, wise, and spellbinding stories make up this debut. 

In "When She Is Old and I Am Famous", a young woman confronts the inscrutable power of her cousin's beauty. In "Note to Sixth-Grade Self", a band of popular girls exert their social power over an awkward outcast. In "Isabel Fish", 14-year-old Maddy learns to scuba dive in order to mend her family after a terrible accident. 

Alive with the victories, humiliations, and tragedies of youth, How to Breathe Underwater illuminates this powerful territory with striking grace and intelligence.
