about this item
Mason Williams dominates short races in the pool, but his endurance is not up to speed. When one of his teammates taunts him that he might never ""swim with the big fish,"" Mason vows to train harder. Luckily, his best friend Alex has a great idea . . . to swim in a nearby lake to build up his strength. AlexÂ paddles hisÂ kayak beside Mason as he swims in the lakeÂ each day after school, and soon Mason starts seeing results. But when the two friends have an argument, Mason might take his training too far. Will Mason be able to swim the distance?
Mason Williams is on his junior high school swim team, and he has always been fast at the short distances, but if he wants to compete in the longer races he will need to work on his endurance--so his best friend suggests that he train in the nearby lake.
