Product description

Nominated for the Carnegie Medal 2017.

We’ve seen the Syrian refugees in their dinghies. Now roll back to 1945. Four refugees place their faith in a ship and the promise of safety. Or is it a lie…? You’ve heard of the Titanic. 1503 souls lost at sea. So why have you never heard of the Wilhelm Gustloff? Sunk at port in 1945, with around 9000 people drowned. (Mostly wartime refugees.) Who were they? What happened? Who died? Who survived? Written in four voices, this book brings it all to life. Emilia. Florian. Alfred. Joanna. Four young people, running from war and pain and secrets and darkness. Running towards hope…

  • A shocking yet life-affirming novel of the Second World War
  • Inspired by the true story of the worst disaster in maritime history
  • By the author of Carnegie Medal finalist Between Shades of Gray
  • “Ruta Sepetys is a master of historical fiction” – Elizabeth Wein

This book contains mature content more suitable for older readers.
