Resource Description

This novel follows a young man’s story to find himself, particularly in the context of his attempt to break into a gender-biased sport. Bart decides to follow his passion for synchronized swimming and finds himself questioning his identity and his sexuality. The novel's themes of sexual identity and gender inequality lend themselves well to classroom discussions, debates, and writing opportunities around the urge for change from traditional stereotypes.
