Sink, swim – or discover a really weird secret? Cym won’t know till he dives in… There are two weird things about Cymbeline (yes, really!). 1) He has as a weird name. 2) He’s never been swimming. Not once. Isn’t that kind of strange? So he’s a bit nervous at the prospect of his first swimming lesson. Still, how hard can it be? He’s looked up front crawl on the internet, and he’s found his dad’s old swimming trunks. He’s totally ready for this. But he’s not ready for a mishap at the pool – or the exposure of a buried family mystery. Only Cym and his friends can solve it, because (as usual) the grown-ups aren’t telling them anything. To find real answers, sometimes you have to dive deep…
