Heat

Heat by Michael Cadnum digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

A champion diver fights to conquer her fears and get back on the board

Bonnie is doing a reverse 2-and-a-half somersault when her forehead hits the diving board. She sinks into the pool, unconscious, sucking water into her lungs. When her teammates pull her up, they think she’s dead. Bonnie’s coach pumps her chest, breathing air into her lungs until Bonnie’s eyes open, and she can breathe by herself. Her head is bloody, her face a bruised mess. She’s felt pain before, but now there’s something new: For the first time in her life, Bonnie is afraid.
 
Diving has always helped Bonnie escape the pressures of an unhappy family. But even after she recovers from her concussion, she finds it impossible to get back on the board. When her father is indicted for fraud, she needs the freedom of diving more than ever. But before she can fly, she must learn to leap without fear.
