    PDFEPUB Tessa Duder #235; Alex PDFEPUB #210; #235; alex mobile, Alex ePUBNo reason to get excited about this book in a nutshell it was two snotty immature girls competing over everything especially swimming which is at the center of the whole novel I loved the author's writing style but just couldn't appreciate the story itself

    PDFEPUB Tessa Duder #235; Alex PDFEPUB #210; #235; alex mobile, Alex ePUBI’ve never seen this referred to as ‘In Lane 3 Alex Archer’ before and the edition I read was called Alex I read this book because people have been bugging me to read it for years When I was a bit younger and a swimmer myself obviously nowhere near the level that Alex is at but I was still part of a swimming squad people told me to read this book but I got bored with it very quickly and moved on to the next book in the pile of about 20 I had brought home Part of the problem was probably that this book has always been so old Musty old pages and editions published in the 80’s were the only versions of this book available When I saw it in my school library recently with a brand new cover fully made over I decided that I would finally give it a chance I’m glad I did because I loved itI found it absolutely fascinating to discover what life was like for an extremely competitive swimmer and although I’m not the sportiest girl around I loved reading about Alex’s races and fe

    PDFEPUB Tessa Duder #235; Alex PDFEPUB #210; #235; alex mobile, Alex ePUBTalented and driven Alex Archer is trying to keep her head above water literally and figuratively as she tries to manage friends boyfriend family school and journalists all while training to beat her arch nemesis Maggie at the New Zealand Olympic swim trials On the surface In Lane Three Alex Archer by Tessa Duder is a novel about a 15 year old girl on a quest to represent her country in the Olympics but there are deeper issues within the depths of this book The novel is set in the 1950s a time when female athletes had to fight against stereotypes and societal pressures in order to compete and Alex is at the forefront of this battle

    PDFEPUB Tessa Duder #235; Alex PDFEPUB #210; #235; alex mobile, Alex ePUB1 I decided to read this book because I was given it for Christmas2 A character that I found interesting was Alex's friend Julia because you don't find out very much about her and she has a big secret that you don't know through the whole book3 My favourite quote from the book was Twenty yards to go and you're already justifying second place hoping it will be good enough for Rome I like this quote because it is quite relatable because she sort of just gives up on winning or trying her best which is very easy to do and a lot of people do it4 Something I thought deeply about after reading this book was about people who are very elite at a sport because in the book her friend tries to convince her to give up everything else she does just to concentrate on swimming like her competitor does because then she would definitely beat her but she doesn't want to This made me think about the balance between training enough to be good and experiencing or enjoying other thin
