Resentment and hostility are gradually replaced by commitment and pride as the swimmers strive to honor themselves and their dying program in their last hurrah.
The life lesson that Blake learns about coping with change is chronicled in emails, letters, journal entries, and text messages starting on the day he receives the terrible news.
