Troy Aitken has just joined the Vancouver club where Jessie Cameron has been swimming for half her life. At first Jessie and her friends are in awe of Troy, who is one of the best athletes they've ever seen. Then the rumours begin to surface...
Are the stories true? Jessie's friends believe them, but Jessie isn't sure. Is it fair to turn against Troy on the basis of gossip alone? In the end, Jessie decides she must uncover the truth for herself.
Sandra Diersch offers young readers a taut, suspenseful story about the high-pressure world of competitive swimming.
