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.

This unique book shares the story of today’s undocumented immigrants in graphic novel form. Ebo is alone. First, his sister left, seeking out a life in Europe that offers more than their life in Ghana. Now his brother, Kwame, has disappeared on what Ebo assumes is the same journey. Determined not to be left behind, and to find his family again, Ebo tracks down his brother, and the boy’s journey together on a trip that takes them across the Sahara to Tripoli, then across the Mediterranean. Those who survive the physical exhaustion, illness, human traffickers, storms, and handmade rafts may reach the safety of refugee centers. But the journey doesn’t end there.

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.
