Swash! is a great yarn, a rip-roaring adventure story on a little (new) island off the Cape called The Rump, by the locals.
It centers around Chris, a likable teenager, who makes a pretty big find on the beach of his town that changes his summer, at the very least.
Myers has written some great characters and scenes, something for which I was more than willing to suspend my disbelief in the interest of a good tale.
The writing is pretty crisp and the story sails along and is all knotted up in the end fairly neatly. It was a great way to spend a few hours.

In all honesty, this book is one of the most enjoyable surprises I've come across in a long time, and I am an avid reader. From the moment I started this delightful tale, I felt like I was transported directly into what was happening. I was drawn right in and didn't want to leave. I was anticipating an adventure and the author delivers on this, with a spirited and colorful account and all kinds of fun things happening. What I didn't expect was that it really ended up being so much more. Myers has an innate ability to paint a picture and create characters that are truly alive. He is a master at dialogue and putting his rich imagination into words. Reading this has the effortless quality of watching a movie, only it just happens to be in your head with the added benefit of experiencing what the characters are thinking and feeling. Myers somehow knows how to make the unbelievable, believable. Many authors try to do this and don't quite get it right. Well, this guy is a natural. You feel like you actually know these characters and that you are a member of this Cape Cod community watching things happen...that couldn't possibly be happening. You feel you are an actual part of the events, as they unfold.

This is the first book I've read by Myers. I read it in two days and it would have been quicker if I didn't have to put it down and go to work. I immediately bought two of his other books, which I can't wait to start. If you like a book that lets you escape from your everyday life, yet is believable and earnest...you're in for a real treat, here.
