It's summertime, and the Tubman family is headed to Tarrytown for a fun-filled vacation, which sounds great to Sheila—until she learns that her family's rental home comes with a dog. What's more, her parents are going to make her take swimming lessons. Shelia is terrified of both!

Soon, Shelia makes friends with Mouse, who shows her that in order to conquer her fears, she must first acknowledge that she's afraid. But Shelia's not called "the Great" for nothing: She's far too proud and stubborn to admit her fears. Will Shelia be able to deal with her worries? Could it be okay not to be perfect? Or will her summer wind up being a real bummer? A classic story from favorite author Judy Blume.
