Summary
It was a night without comfort, and without sleep. The rain fell without mercy, and the waves tossed the boat around like a plaything.There were no lights to head for, and there was no rescue coming. No one on Earth knew where they were, and no one even noticed that they were missing
Summary
This is the story of three teenagers -- all orphans, all desperate to escape horrors in their home countries -- whose paths converge on board a boat crossing the English Channel. Abdul is running from war-torn Baghdad, Iraq; Rosalia, a Romani girl, was sold into sexual slavery but escaped; and Cheslav is fleeing from the Russian military. All of them hope to start new lives in England...but they'll have to make it there alive first. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
