Rated 0

Fiction, General fiction (Children's / Teenage)

The highly acclaimed novel about swimming, competing and growing up.

Nina Hallet is a regular schoolgirl just trying to make her way through her teenage years. She goes to school. She does her homework. She swims.

One of Nina's dreams is to swim very, very fast. When that dream comes true, Nina Hallet's world is turned upside down. Nothing she has learned - from school, from swimming or from her parents - has prepared her for the role of international sporting celebrity. But as her list of achievements is dwarfed by mounting expectations, Nina funds herself struggling to satisfy, not just herself, but a nation hungry for heroes.

When the dream becomes a nightmare, Nina begins to learn the lessons that will truly set her up for life.

An exhilarating and joyful novel about finding your place in the world.
