In the follow-up to the critically acclaimed Waiting to Dive, Carly's life has gotten complicated again. Her mother is expecting a baby, and Carly isn't sure how she feels about that. Then her dreams of Olympic diving glory are put in danger—she develops a fear of heights when she's asked to try platform diving. Follow Carly as she weaves her way through her hectic schedule of school, friends, diving and the next big adventure in her life: a new brother or sister.
