Will Daizy realize that even when she's sinking, her friends and family are there to help her swim?

  • Katie, age 13

    Have just finished reading this book, literally a sec ago. it freaked me out, because Daizys life is so similar to mine!! Not only does her dad teach her how to swim, and print her off a certificate on the computer, he's going through a midlife crisis. and she also has to deal with a vain boy with blonde spiky hair he can't leave alone who just so happens to be called ETHAN, come and do heroics after she twists her ankle on a field.

    ... all of which has happened to me...

    Just saying. I mean, i'm pretty freaked out right now... LOL
