The Diary of a Late Bloomer by L. M. L. Gil

Lo is very quirky. She lives with very overprotective parents. Lo goes to college and decides to join the swim team, even though she learn to swim with books in summer. :) And gets on a team. She likes anime and manga. 

Though the story we follow her as she grows from extremely sheltered girl and basically starts to grow up. She starts to date, even though it does always goes well and makes friends. 

The book has one of the best character development, I've ever read. Even though she grows, developed, 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!

Every wallflower blooms at their own perfect time, but some like quirky Lo, take longer than others. 

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 Flying Octopi. The only things standing her way are her social awkward nature and the fact that she just learned to swim. 

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

 happy reading,
