Publisher's Summary

The Happenstances at the Yellow County Community Swim and Racquet Club the Summer Before Last is a bittersweet, nostalgic, but comic novella about a team of misfits, including a loser who secretly lives in the guard house of the club, a struggling artist with webbed toes, a timid teen with a concave chest, and the beautiful heiress of the Comfort Inn fortune. They have to win the impending Tri-County Relay Race and save the club from being run by a management company that only cares about money. The management company hires an opposing relay team of ringers including a girl with a prosthetic dorsal fin and a man named Carmichael Schmelps who looks suspiciously like a certain Olympic gold medalist.

Fresh and Fun

This book full of fun vivid characters and nostalgia! Like a good 90s comedy, I found myself rooting for this rag tag group. Although their stakes seem low, their passion for their community pool kept me hooked. Stoked to read the next one!
