The Properties of Water
Hannah McKinnon
End of book
I'm not sure what I think about the title. I found out what had happened to Marni. Her and some of her friends we swimming at the lake and jumping into the water from ledges, and Marni wanted Lace to go and jump with her but Lace didn't want to. Lace left and was walking down the road and saw ambulances drive by and cop cars. She rushed back and her sister had been hurt. She hit her head really hard which impaired the left side of her body and was in a coma for 12 hours. They don't know if she"ll ever walk again. If I could pick a couple new titles they would be, The Last Jump, because of when Marni jumped it would be the last time she"d ever jump in a very long time. She has to have therapy everyday and slowly work her way back into the water. Another would be, Water Runs Through Our Veins, because Hannah talks about how both girls love to swim and they are very talented swimmers. After Marni's accident she still has that fire to get back out there and swim and be apart of the swim team again. She's the same girl, she just won't ever be able to really use her legs to swim again. The water will always be in her though.
