Two young brothers, Ebo and Kwame, are determined to leave their desperate living conditions in Ghana and find a better life in Europe. Their journey is filled with unimaginable challenges, but Ebo and Kwame are incredibly resourceful boys. Somehow they never lose the hope that life will get better. This is a page turner that is powerful, eye-opening, and heartbreaking. An important read for both teens and adults. — Holly (RBB Staff)

A powerfully moving graphic novel by New York Times bestselling author Eoin Colfer and the team behind the Artemis Fowl graphic novels that explores the current plight of undocumented immigrants.

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.
