Voice of Youth Advocates
Beverly is pleased to be spending a week with her uncle in Hawaii. She will have the chance to do some diving and escape the Canadian winter in Winnipeg at the same time. Because she is a little self-conscious about her body, which she terms "pudgy," Beverly decides that she will try to drop ten pounds during her stay. Dieting and diving do not mix, which is a lesson that Beverly learns the tough way. The cute dive master, Garth, however, does not seem to mind that Beverly needs some extra attention. The main attraction of the Orca Soundings series of books is that they are quick and interesting reads especially for struggling readers. High interest, low readability novels that deal with a variety of different characters and issues are the hallmark of this series, an essential one for motivating reluctant readers.-Teri S. Lesesne.

Y el problema de tener un ataque de pánico cuando estás a cuarenta pies por debajo de la superficie del océano es que te puedes ahogar, y sabes muy bien que te puedes ahogar. De hecho, sin el regulador es imposible respirar, aun si estuvieras tranquilo. Tampoco debes contener la respiración debido a la presión que hay en el agua. El caso es que si no estás respirando y sacando burbujas porque has perdido el regulador, tu pecho puede expandirse hasta explotar.

Beverly is in Hawaii, helping her uncle at his dive shop, learning how to dive and trying to lose weight and get a boyfriend. When Garth, an accomplished diver, shows an interest in her, Beverly is ecstatic, until it turns out Garth is only interested in one thing. Struggling with failing strength from her self-imposed starvation diet, Beverly finds herself in deep trouble when she has to fight Garth off underwater.
