Bronwyn's CBR4 Review 2: Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great by Judy Blume
I just read Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great and it was about a girl named Sheila and she is afraid of lots of things. She doesn't want to admit it to her friends, or to herself.
She and her family move to Tarrytown, New York from New York City for the summer and there is a dog who lives at their rented house, and Sheila is definitely afraid of dogs. She has to learn to swim and she doesn't like that either.
My favorite part is when she swam all the way to 12 feet and then fell asleep!
She finally learns how to tell the truth and admit things, thanks to her new friends. Especially her best friend, Mouse.
