This is the second story to feature Bobby, the Down's Syndrome football enthusiast, and his big sister Charlie.

This time they are off to summer camp. Also with them is Paul, a boy who hides underneath a furry parka and will not speak.

Bobby instantly decides that the two of them are best friends, and as he is potty about football, he tries to play it with him as much as possible.

Charlie is being a responsible older sister and keeping a watch on Bobby, which is demanding enough, but she also has a challenge of her own.

One of the planned camp activities is a relay race over water, and she is very scared of water.
