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?

    " This wasn't too bad. I had been excited to read another Blume book, since I didn't get too many as a child. And Blume being one of the most banned authors, well... The story was cute. Sheila got on my nerves and was bossy and lied all the time. But she was meant to be a flawed character. This book was written to give readers a glimpse into Peter's "arch-enemy." It makes sense why Sheila is the way she is, and I grew up with quite a few people like her. The thing that annoyed me the most with the book was some of the way the narrator told the story. There were just things I didn't agree with. But when I saw it was read by the author, I decided to let it go. :-) "
