Fig is clever, she lives at home with a younger brother, Mum and Dad. But she is bullied at school, pushed to do more study at home by her mother and is generally fed up. She is 15 and wants more. Her mother has come up with a New Year’s resolution for Fig, acting classes with the local drama club. But for someone like Fig, awful. Fig’s New Year’s resolution was a bit different, she is going to swim the world. 19 fresh or salt water races in 6 continents, over the space of a year. Slight problem – she can’t swim. But as her very protective, pushy mother says resolutions should not be broken.
So begins an adventure into the unknown, the making of lasting friendships, a growing confidence in herself, that she could achieve something that her mother had no control over, and having the strength to stand up for herself.
In this age of mobile technology and social media, Fig finds the strength to turn off her phone and enjoy the journey.
