This third-season opener for the ABC Afterschool Special series is based on Betsy Byars' Newbery award-winning book, The Summer of the Swans. Like most 14-year old girls, Sarah Godfrey (Heather Totten) is wrapped up with the usual problems of puberty: she's moody, self-conscious, has trouble making friends, and is averse to thinking about anyone's problems other than her own. But a sudden crisis involving her mentally challenged younger brother (Reed Diamond) shakes Sarah out of her self-involvement and helps her make great strides in emotional maturity.
