17 Jun 2005 Kate Cann Trilogy
Coll and Art are back together again, and the question of sex is also back on the agenda. But it's different now - Coll feels the time is right. She is unprepared for the powerful new emotions that sex produces, though, and has to make sure she keeps her head above water...

From the Author

This is the second book in the Coll and Art series .....
This is the second book in the Coll and Art series .....
and it's been translated into Italian, German, Spanish, Swedish, Danish, Portuguese - and American! We had such a good response to Diving In that my publishers gave me real freedom and not much censorship with In the Deep End - which was great! I wanted to write about the incredible power of a sexual relationship, and how it complicates your life. If I had one aim it was to get over the message: don't settle for second best. Coll doesn't. I had a fab review for this, Books for Keeps, March 1998, 'This book contains some of the best writing about love and sex that I have ever read in a book for young people. Coll's increasing passion for Art is so beautifully charted that I defy any reader to remain unmoved ... emotionally stunning.' --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing trilogy about teenage love 12 July 2005
As i said in my review of 'diving in' i literrally couldn't put these 3 books down and read all 3 in 2 days. And this, the second installment in the trilogy, was the best of the three. After reading 'diving in' i was dying to know what was goin to happen to them, (i know i know, they're not real. but still)
Coll has forgiven Art for pressuring her and assuming she'd sleep with him and they are back togethor. Soon she feels she's ready to go all the way, and they sleep togethor, and its the start of an intense and passionate realationship as her feelings for him grow stronger and stronger. But is Coll prepared for the emotional journey that comes with sex, and love? she also see's just how much Art's background (and father) have messed him up inside and wonders if he will ever open up, admit his feelings and let her in. And will everything else thats going on around them, with their parents, friends and school, put pressure on their realationship?
This is emotionally stunning writing, especially when coll decides to go see Art in the last few chapters, and gives him her true feelings, (trying not to give too much away). By the end of that chapter i was in tears (and i hardly ever cry at books or films)
This is the most emotional of the three. The characters (especially Coll and Art) grow brilliantly, and become so real - they come to life. Coll's emotions and what she goes through felt so real, like i was feeling them with her. Her feelings for Art overpowered her. I would love to feel as much for a guy (and hopefully have it returned) as she does for Art. The passion and intensity. As if there is no one else she could ever want.
Kate cann is right when she say's you either love Art or hate him, despite his arrogance and cockyness, i loved him. And i felt for him.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book I've ever read! 1 April 1999
By A Customer
I bought Kate's first book, Diving In and enjoyed it greatly. When I saw that a 2ND book to follow it up- I sent away for it as soon as possible and read it all in one night. It is such a brilliant book. It shows how Art and Coll connect and their so-called love. I found this book the best out of the three. It shows how teenagers relationships are today. It can also guide you into the RIGHT directions which Coll did't take. I LOVED this book so much and I would suggest, infact tell everyone to go and buy it. But, if you are a guy you most likely wouldn't like it. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Kate Canntastic! 11 Aug 2001
By A Customer
First of all we need to say, can we get a 'hell yeah!' The most slammin' book of the trilogy. With Arts masses of sex appeal & emotional boundaries we understand where Coll is coming from. Kate's writing skills enable u to open your mind as her wording is so vivid, its enough to get any imagination going!

If you thought 'Diving In' was addictive, you'll LOVE 'In The Deep End.' Once you pick it up, you can't put it down until you've read the whole book! The story of Coll and Art is so compelling and emotional- it's a stunning piece of writing. It explores all of the emotions in a relationship in a realistic way, and I would recommend this book to all teenage girls. Anyone who dismisses this as a wishy-washy romance is seriously mistaken, because this book is powerful from start to finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something every teenage girl can relate to 15 Aug 2006
When I read this book, I could relate to all the emotions that Coll was going through. Not alot of authors can portray a teenagers life and all the strange emotions that we go through but I thought this book managed to do all of that! I can not wait to read the rest of the books in this trilogy, I know they will be amazing! I also recommmend Kate Cann's other books, especially footloose!

5.0 out of 5 stars Kate Cann & In The Deep End- a literal genius 23 Dec 2003
After reading Diving In, I was in suspense; Kate Cann made Art and Coll's relationship seem so real, so easy to relate to. From the moment I opened In At The Deep End, I was in awe of the incredible way she portrayed the raw, intense feelings and passions of the relationship. Coll was put in the same situation as so many young women and Kate Cann approached the subject of sex with sensitivity and care. Her way with words would no doubt be a comfort to anybody in the same boat as Coll. I have read many Kate Cann books but felt this one was by far her best; she handled the description of Coll and Art's sexual relations with style, avoiding the somewhat standard explicit descriptions of sex. Kate Cann deserves the recognition she gets for her work; she is my inspiration and after reading In At The Deep End, I was truly moved.
