In keeping with the sports theme of this week’s main selection and knowing how many kids are on swim teams, we recommend “Heat Wave.” This book, by Cassie Waters, is the second installment in the “Pool Girls” series and is perfect for readers ages 8 to 12. The story revolves around what happens when the swim team’s star swimmer breaks her leg and Grace must fill in for her. The problem is that Grace isn’t a very good swimmer. What happens in the week before the big meet makes for an exciting summer read that may seem pretty familiar to you!
