About the Book
Dive into this "smart, imaginative, first-rate comedy" (Karen Durbin, ELLE) featuring an all-star comedic cast, including Steve Carell, Maya Rudolph, Toni Collette, Allison Janney, Sam Rockwell, and Amanda Peet! While 14-year-old Duncan (Liam James) is being dragged on a family trip with his mom (Collette) and her overbearing boyfriend (Carell), he finds a gregarious friend (Rockwell) at a local water park. The two form a powerful bond as Duncan learns to swim through the challenges of life, love, family and friendship, resulting in a vacation he'll never forget.

My Take on the Book
One of the things that I loved about this movie were the characters. The actors (as well as writers did a great job at developing characters that have depth and that you can relate to. While the plot may be something that has been seen in other movies, it still will make you contemplate and internally ask questions that make the movie fun and worthwhile. The movie will tear at your emotions as well as draw you in as you come along on the journey that the characters are on. You may even find yourself coming of age along with the characters in the story itself!
