Back of the Book Blurb #106 Challenge

From Sioux's PageSioux offers this challenge.

She posts a picture and you need to imagine it as a graphic for a book. You choose the genre and book title and then write a blurb that might appear on the back of the book.

The blurb should be 150 words or less (not including the title). The genre is wide-open.
Each blogger should include their blurb on their own blog, and link back to this post. Have fun with it. Go to the other posts and comment on the other blurbs.  You can do fancy techy things with the photo.

(Join in if you dare...! It sounds like fun! I think this would be a lot of fun to do with students especially since they would be expected to write 150 words or less!)

The Swimming Challenge

Anna was going to take the plunge this year! She was tired of sitting on the sidelines watching everyone have fun! No one knew that she didn’t know how to swim and thought she didn’t like getting wet. Her husband dragged her to the pool because he liked to swim. The things you do for love! That little kid kept splashing water on her every chance she could get and then run away giggling. When she dived off the diving board and drenched Anna with water, that was the last straw. She was not going to be intimidated by that little monster anymore. Anna was going to sign up for swimming lessons! This was the year to overcome her fear! So, when she went into the office to sign up, the only spot left was with the class full of 5-year olds! She would do it anyway! (148 words)
