Is my career a bad thing for my family? Am I doing enough for my children? Am I selfish if I want to take a step forward in my career? Do I measure up to other parents? Am I a bad mother?

"Learning to Swim is a darkly romantic beginning to what promises to be an unusual contemporary YA fantasy series." --USA Today

She's filthy rich. He's not. It'll take patience, an old woman who thinks she's a selkie, and one salty-sweet summer on the beach to make them realize what's between them.
When Cora's mother whisks the family away for the summer, Cora must decide between forging her future in the glimmering world of second homes where her parents belong, or getting lost in the enchanting world of the locals and the mystery surrounding a lonely old woman who claims to be a selkie--and who probably needs Cora more than anyone else. 
Through the fantastical tales and anguished memories of the batty Mrs. O'Leary, as well as the company of a particularly gorgeous local boy called Ronan, Cora finds an escape from the reality of planning her life after high school. But will it come at the cost of alienating Cora's mother, who struggles with her own tragic memories? 
As the summer wanes, it becomes apparent that Mrs. O'Leary is desperate to leave Oyster Beach. And Ronan just may hold the answer to her tragic past--and Cora's future.
Learning to Swim is a sweet YA contemporary romance with a dash of Celtic magical realism. If you like classic boy-meets-girl stories and blurring the line between fantasy and reality, then you'll love Annie Cosby's magical tale of first love riddles with mythical mysteries.

Last summer ended in disaster for Cora. She had scurried home, terrified of the secrets she’d uncovered and afraid to be honest with the one person who most deserved it—Rory. But after a grueling year of trying desperately (and unsuccessfully) not to think about what she left behind, Cora finds a surprise on her doorstep. Rory's little brother, Aidan, has discovered the truth and recruits Cora, along with her best friend Rosie, to go with him to Ireland to explain their selkie heritage to Rory. Desperate to get back the love she couldn't face last summer, Cora agrees to go. But will Rory want to see her after the way she abandoned him? On a magical dash through the west of Ireland, following false leads and learning the all-but-forgotten myths of that wild land, Cora will learn even more about the O’Leary family than she ever imagined. And, maybe, just a little bit about herself. The magic is back in the second Hearts Out of Water novel!
