Originally published in 2017 in Great Britain by Hodder Children's Books, an imprint of Hachette Children's Group, a part of Hodder & Stoughton.
"Ebo is alone. His brother, Kwame, has disappeared, and Ebo knows it can only be to attempt the hazardous journey to Europe, and a better life, the same journey their sister set out on months ago. But Ebo refuses to be left behind in Ghana. He sets out after Kwame and joins him on the quest to reach Europe. Ebo's epic journey takes him across the Sahara Desert to the dangerous streets of Tripoli, and finally out to the merciless sea. But with every step he holds on to his hope for a new life, and a reunion with his family"--Provided by publisher.

Illegal Rating submitted by mariabailey14 on July 30, 2019, 12:55pm I think it is a very good book on understanding the struggle of immigrants traveling to new countries. I reccomend this book to young adults!

Good book submitted by KimB on August 27, 2020, 4:14pm A sad, but realistic look, at immigration. As an adult, I read through this fairly quickly and didn't have to take breaks, except in the first few pages. Once I got into it, I read it. But I already understood the underlying issues. My tween never returned to finish reading it after taking a break a few pages in. I'd recommend it for older teens.

good overview submitted by camelsamba on August 28, 2020, 3:14pm This book could help teens understand the trauma many refugees are subject to. As a well-drawn graphic novel, it may be of interest to reluctant readers.
