People fascinate the psychologist/author (psycho author) known as Jennifer Lane. Her therapy clients talk to her all day long about their dreams and secrets, and her characters tell her their stories at night. Jen delights in peeling away the layers to scrutinize their psyches and emotions. But please rest assured, dear reader, she isn’t psychoanalyzing you right now. She’s already got too many voices in her head!
Stories of redemption interest Jen the most, especially the healing power of love and empathy. She is the author of The Conduct Series—-romantic suspense for adult readers—-and is currently at work on the third and final installment: On Best Behavior. Streamline is her first foray into writing for young adults, but she’s found this sort of writing even more fun. A former college swimmer, Jen was able to put a lot of her own experiences into this book.

Jennifer Lane really knows her stuff when it comes to the world of competitive swimming, a fact that allows her to easily drop the reader into her stories set around the subject.
What starts out as a simple college recruitment trip turns into an eye-opening experience for teenager, Abby Donahue. The characters she encounters are complex and feel altogether very real and human. Abby leaves with a new perspective on her own life and relationships.
If you enjoy Swim Recruit, I highly recommend Streamline, a full-length NA novel by the same author. Streamline deals with the difficult subjects of domestic abuse and obligation, set against the backdrop of a military academy and college swimming.
