Publisher Description

Lo is a sheltered 20-year-old who loves baking, manga/anime, and octopi. When she spots her college swim team's tryout flyer sporting her favorite sea creature, an octopus, she knows it's a sign that she must join. The only things standing her way are her socially awkward nature and that she just learned to swim.

Will Lo find her place to shine or will her social anxiety DQ her dreams?

Late Bloomer is a new adult novel that is a cross between Bridget Jones's Diary, Baywatch and Kuragehime.

Editorial Reviews

"The book has one of the best character developments I've ever read. Even though she grows, develops, and branches out, the core of what makes her Lo remains the same.

"It's a great book to read and I highly recommend it!"

—Diary of a Wannabe Writer

"[I]f you enjoy a clean, diary-style coming-of-age story this is a good choice....Lo's entries are realistic, her growth is very believable and her journey is a wholesome growth story."


"I loved this refreshing coming of age romance that follows the quirky, caring, and extremely brave Lo.... beautifully written novel about social outcasts and young men and women learning how to become adults in their own way whether it be school, relationships, work, or family issues.  Another favorite to add to my growing 2020 list."

—The Eclectic Review

"Quite a sweet story...If you feel like something fairly light-hearted, not too taxing and sweet then I suggest you read a bit more about Lo and her life."

—Crazy K.A.L.M

"[A] blissful slow burn of a book, that I ended up adoring.

"The diary style in which this is told felt unique and as the reader, I felt as if I was reading a personal journal and like I was looking into Lo's mind.

"You do not need to be into swimming to enjoy this book!"
