2016070120200104 (R4)Blue Peter's Janet Ellis reads her new story about a young girl's first passion.

A new short storyfrom the writer and former Blue Peter presenter Janet Ellis.

It is nearly the end of the school summer holidays. A young girl is invited to go to the local pool by a boy she likes. She's not keen on swimming and nervous around games and horseplay. Surviving an unexpected dunking, and bolstered by his concerned reaction, she feels older and stronger than before, and begins to shed her childish uncertainty and leave her childhood behind.
