Jessica has had a hearing aid since she was eighth years old. She is ashamed of it and she is afraid of being a laughing stock, especially at school. She does not want be seen as pitiful or different. "If only I had glasses", she frequently thinks. Last year at school she burst out in tears while giving a speech to her class about her disability. This year she has joined a new school and she is not sure whether to tell her classmates about it or keep it a secret. Twice a year Jessica's ears are tested. A doctor checks to see whether her ears are deteriorating or getting better. These are very exciting moments for Jessica. This time she wants to ask the doctor if new hearing devices have been developed that might enable her to swim. Sadly enough she is not allowed to swim anymore, which she liked a lot. She dreams about swimming with her friends again. Will Jessica tell her new classmates about her disability? Will she be able to swim again?
