SPOTLIGHT: Swimming For Sunlight by Allie Larkin @atriabooks @AllieLarkin

Swimming For Sunlight 
by Allie Larkin


When Nan shows Katie photos from her youth as a mermaid performer (based on the real Weeki Wachee mermaids in Florida), Katie begins a quest to reunite the long-lost mermaids and produce a reunion show—while attempting to overcome her fear of water that stems from a childhood tragedy. As nervous Bark struggles to acclimate and an old love reenters the picture, Katie struggles to balance her hopes with her anxiety and realizes just how much Bark’s fears are connected to her own. Swimming for Sunlight is an endearing novel about hope, loss, and friendships (both human and canine) that connect us and span generations.

Allie Larkin is the internationally bestselling author of the novels, Stay and Why Can’t I Be You. Her short fiction has been published in the Summerset Review and Slice, and nonfiction in the anthologies, I’m Not the Biggest Bitch in This Relationship and Author in Progress. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, with her husband, Jeremy, and their fearful, faithful German Shepherd, Stella.
