The classic story of courage and survival.
'The shots were so close they seemed to explode inside Vithy's head. He threw himself to the ground and clapped his hands over his ears . . .'
It's Cambodia. The killing machine that is the Khmer Rouge is in power. Vithy has lost everyone and everything he loved - except his older brother, Mang. They've escaped from almost certain execution, but the brothers become separated and Vithy is left alone to 'follow the lines . . . to the border' - his brother's last instructions.
But which lines? Which border?
A gripping tale of the journey of a boy alone and in danger as he tries to find his brother and escape to freedom.
