“A much-needed book that will strike a chord with so many girls – and help them dare to be different.” – Jacqueline Wilson

Molly is in her final year of primary school, with secret dreams of becoming an Olympic swimmer. Having always lived in the shadow of her manipulative friend, Chloe, Molly finally has the chance to compete in a regional swimming contest and define herself on her own terms. But with the pressure of fitting in, and the sudden arrival of her mysterious mum, will she give up on her dreams for a shot at popularity?

A hugely exciting debut with a classic underdog story, a wonderfully relatable protagonist, and an important message of friendship, body positivity, and celebrating who you are.

“I loved the voice in this accomplished debut, which touches on important issues of bullying and body dysmorphia.” – Fiona Noble, The Bookseller
