"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." This heart-stopping story of courage and friendship is based on the true experiences of children, caught up in the refugee jungle of Calais and striving to find a place for themselves in the world.
Deborah Ellis is the author of The Parvana Trilogy, I am a Taxi, Three Wishes: Palestinian and Israeli Children Speak, The Heaven Shop, Off to War: Soldiers' Children Speak and Children of War: Iraqi Children Speak.
