Little Lisette is a deep sea diver who has type 1 diabetes. She is invited to a party under the ocean but when she has a low blood sugar she decides to igre it. As the party goes on she has to face her fears and treat her blood sugar in front of her new friends. This book is about being brave and telling people about your diabetes. It shouldn't hold you back from your dreams.
