WILL ALICE'S SECRET RUIN HER PERFECT SUMMER?

It's August, and the whole gang is having a terrific time, hanging out at Mark Stedmeister's swimming pool — except Alice, who has a secret even from her best friends Pamela and Elizabeth. Alice is deathly afraid of deep water, and just as afraid of what will happen if her secret gets out.

When disaster strikes, it's even worse than Alice imagined. How can she face her friends? And how can she face her boyfriend, Patrick, who's coming home from summer vacation and looking forward to joining the eighth grade swim team with Alice?

Synopsis:

August days are hot and the pool is the place to be. But not for Alice who's afraid of deep water--and afraid to admit it. Her friends begin to conquer their fears: Elizabeth overcomes her aversion to kissing; Pamela trades a secure boyfriend for a not-so-sure one. Everybody expects Alice to learn to swim. What's she to do? Others in the series include Alice in April and Alice in Between.
