Summary
"In one of the first works of narrative nonfiction on the ongoing refugee crisis ... [this book] describes the ... stories and the ... decisions that migrants have to make as they head toward what they believe is a better life: a pregnant Eritrean woman, four days overdue, chooses to board an obviously unsafe smugglers ship to Greece; a father, swimming from a sinking ship, has to decide whether to hold on to one child or let him go to save another"--Amazon.com
