In the small coastal town of Port Antonio, Jamaica, something unusual is taking place. Many people in Jamaica cannot swim and are afraid of the sea but the arrival of Olga - a two-time Olympic Gold Medal winner for synchronised swimming - is changing the hearts and minds of young female swimmers who might have otherwise become mothers too soon, before having the chance to explore their ambitions. The stories told in the Against All Odds picture book series are true stories of brave boys and girls from different parts of the world, who, with their small everyday actions, beat the odds and achieve something great. The series is intended to promote diversity and acceptance by exposing children to kids' stories from faraway places facing unique situations or overcoming prejudice.
