Publisher's Summary

Sheila Tubman sometimes wonders who she really is: the outgoing, witty, and capable Sheila the Great, or the secret Sheila, who's afraid of the dark, spiders, swimming, and dogs?

When her family spends the summer in Tarrytown, Sheila has to face some of her worst fears. Not only does a dog come with the rented house, but her parents expect Sheila to take swimming lessons! Sheila does her best to pretend she's an expert at everything, but she knows she isn't fooling her new best friend, Mouse Ellis, who happens to be a crackerjack swimmer and a dog lover.

What will it take for Sheila to admit to the Tarrytown kids and to herself that she's only human?

What the Critics Say

"Author Judy Blume reads this lively recording of her novel...and her voice perfectly personifies Sheila's scrappiness and bravado." (School Library Journal)
"Every bit of the warmth, humor and insightfulness of [Blume's] writing comes across in her reading. Blume's fans read her books over and over; they'll listen to this audiobook again and again." (Audiofile)

    "Not my fave Judy Blume book"

    The protagonist, Sheila, was a tedious character. She lied, whined & complained for over 2 hours. Not super likable. I'm sure my kids enjoyed it better than I did!
