In the other half of the book, Jaime continues to explore his intriguing new character Tonta: In âeoeFuck Summer,âe Tonta is talked into joining the summer swim team but canâe(tm)t figure out why the brand new swim coach knows her âe" so, with help from friends, she sets out to find the answer. Meanwhile, something far more sinister is brewing behind the scenes...
