The Swim Team Study Guide


When you're in the water it's just you. Before St Anne's, I used to think about how being in the water gave me so much space to move around freely, and it would feel like I'd escaped the cramped flat I lived in with my mother and the Sudanese couple with their screeching infant. I could ignore my life and listen to the roaring of the water with every stroke I made, and concentrate on nothing but the rhythmic movement of freestyle. Now I swim to escape this school - the school I was so desperate to get into. 


Khetiwe is the poor scholarship girl from Yeoville at the exclusive St Anne's Academy. Kind of like a new inmate in prison, she has to be unafraid of the others so they don't give her a whipping, and maybe that'll earn her a little respect. Because, really, this place too is full of crazy, violent thugs, but here they're sixteen-year-old girls masked in Chanel and clothed in Puma.
