It’s by the author of Artemis Fowl, but it’s definitely no fairy tale. One boy. One vast ocean. One leaky dinghy. All lives are equal, right? But Ebo knows that some are more equal than others. His sister left for Europe months ago. Then his brother followed. Now it’s Ebo turn. Which is how he’s ended up bobbing up and down in a tiny inflatable boat on a frozen sea. He’s crossed the Sahara desert. He’s dodged danger on the streets of Tripoli. Now he’s crammed in with a dozen other cold, hungry migrants on the merciless ocean. The smugglers won’t keep him alive. The cold waves won’t. The tatty dinghy won’t. But when they arrive, the rich people in Europe will give them food, blankets and shelter. Won’t they?
