An amazing book of courage and survival, filled with so much wonderful detail about how children act, think and cope when faced with extreme circumstances... a book about memory, friendship and hope. It's the kind of book that made me want to wake my children from their beds, just to kiss them and whisper that I love them.

A story about the strength and fragility of human nature. Rob Ewing's writing is powerful, compassionate and brilliant. I absolutely loved it.
