9780140383928: The Snake-Stone

James is a championship diver, with a shot for the Olympics. But where did his talent really come from? His adoptive parents cannot tell him -- so, after years of unanswered questions, he does the unthinkable. He breaks training, and runs off to the farmland of his birth, with nothing but a mysterious stone shaped like a snake. Can he use it to unlock his past?
