Addie is a young girl who isn't very brave. Addie doesn't know how to swim and doesn't want to swim. Addie is afraid that her father will never come home and that her family wont be able to move back into their house. Addie's best friend is a very brave out going girl. But she gets in a lot of trouble when she brings a fire cracker into the house and decides to put it under Addie's aunt's chair. This leads up to her running away and Addie might just have to swim to save her.
