Ever since she was little, Abby dreamt to qualify for an Olympic swimming event, and she is so close she can almost feel it. She has her whole family’s support and her times are getting better and better. But one day, she starts feeling dizzy during a practice. Her coach pushes her to get it tested but Abby ignored his warning in denial. The dizzy feeling slowly escalates into her fainting and everyone now knows that there is something seriously wrong. Something that could crush her dreams forever. This was an inspirational novel that really made me root for the protagonist like any good book does. However, the readers will still probably feel some frustration towards the characters which does make it feel less relatable and likable. The plot was decent however, it seemed predictable and slow, especially at the beginning. Rating: 4/5
