Gracie never wanted to move to Calgary. Now she has to make new friends and adjust to a new school. The only bright spot is the synchronized swimming team. Gracie is excited about the chance to perform with some of the best swimmers in Alberta.
But not everyone on the team is equally excited about her. After only one practice, one of the swimmers tells Gracie to shape up quickly-or else get out.
Gracie soon finds herself in a battle with the star of the team in this dramatic, fast-paced sequel to Breathing Not Required.
