From the Series Lorimer Podium Sports Academy

  • Interest Level: Grade 9 - Grade 12   ·  
  • Reading Level: Grade 3

Toronto synchro swimmer Carrie Munroe is Podium Sports Academy’s team flyer and the school’s best prospect for making it at the upcoming Vegas tryouts—fulfilling her dreams of being in a glitz-and-glamour professional show. Carrie feels there’s only one thing holding her back—the weekly poolside weigh-ins. Her coach agrees, and Carrie is put on a special diet to control her weight. But the pressure to succeed while also dealing with troublesome family members back home lead Carrie to make some very risky decision about her health and eating habits.

To come out on top, Carrie will have to accept that although she may not have the typical swimmer’s body, she has the strength to be the best—but only if she takes care of herself.
