'Do you ever think about being born? No, I don't either. But what I do think about is this - did my mother want me?'
James' adoptive parents are proud of his talent and determination - he's in training for the Junior National Diving Championship. For James, diving is everything. Until he looks at the snake-stone and is drawn into thinking about his birth mother, and where she might be. He knows that to work out his future, he needs to make sense of his past.
Embarking on a quest to find out who he really is, James sets off on a journey which brings him back to his true home.
