The day of the big swim meet has finally arrived, and Jessenia is excited, but a bit worried too. It’s her first meet away from home, and the other team is on a winning streak. Her coach tells the team that everyone is equal in the water, but Jessenia wonders if their team spirit is really enough to lead them to victory.

Readers of all ages will root with Jessenia’s mother and little brother, Luis, for the team as they dive into the challenge of competition. Translated from Get Set! Swim!, Preparadas... listas... ¡Ya! is the perfect reminder for young athletes that teamwork and pride are sometimes the truest victories of all.
