My Review

5 stars

I love novels about swimming and having a passion for a hobby that can become something more, something professional.

A young nine-year-old who loves to swim and dive finds out she has an ear infection that will keep her away from the pool and passion for ten days. Ten days can be crucial when the coach is evaluating their best personal time for the team that will compete. Julia doesn't want to miss this opportunity and decides to find her solution to swim without wetting her ear. The solution is disastrous and could have taken a turn for the worse but I am glad the author wrote the perfect solution and ending.

Two major lessons from this one (there are more but these two are relevant to me) family and community support that will listen and change rules, not accepting defeat, and fighting for a passion.

Thank you netgalley and Publisher for this e-arc.
