Surviving High School: One swimmer's quest to fit in

 
 
Emily Kessler is starting her freshman year at Twin Branches High with a lot more on her plate than just first-day jitters. Her sister Sara, a professional swimmer, died a year ago in a tragic car accident, leaving Emily with an enormous weight on her shoulders. Stricken with grief, Emily copes by vying to be the best swimmer she can be, trying to live up to Sara’s legacy.

 

And that’s not to mention her own father’s legacy. He’s won an Olympic gold medal and is now a coach and teacher at her school. His strict coaching means Emily isn’t allowed to go to dances or even date until college. What?!

 

Even worse are the queen bees who run the school—especially Dominique, the one rival Emily can’t beat. Constantly insulting and demeaning, it’s forcing Emily to lose confidence in herself.

 

As Emily starts to learn more and more about Sara’s life and the details on what really happened that fateful night, she finds herself struggling between following a crush (the popular hottie Ben) and the lifestyle of a normal student, or following her dream—Sara’s dream—to put her all into swimming. Can Emily still be a serious swimmer without missing out on all the fun? Or will sacrifices have to be made in order to live out what she thought was her sister’s life?

 

Read M. Doty’s book, Surviving High School (in stores tomorrow!) and follow Emily as she’s forced to make difficult decisions that will determine the fate of her high school life.
