At the moment Mrs Hulbert is reading us a book about an Olympic swimmer and how her and her best friend, Sarah, are determined to compete in the national swimming team for the 1936 Olympics. Unfortunately when Sarah finds out that the host city is Hitler's Berlin, she knows she can't compete because she is Jewish. On the back of the book it says that Eleanor witnesses the Nazi's hostility to Jews and hears the distant murmurings that will erupt into WWII. I wonder what that means? I am enjoying this book because its written as a diary and the girls always find a way to fix their problems.
The girls go to school at CCS Camden Collegiate School which is a private school. They catch a train to school every morning and they love swimming
