About the Book

Two children, from two worlds, an ocean apart.

This is a tale of what might have been for a little boy.

After his best friend is killed by a drug dealer's stray bullet, a young, inner city boy runs away from his crime-ridden neighborhood.  His incredible journey unexpectedly takes him to a place where children are enslaved.

Along the way, he befriends and helps a young girl who has a horrible secret.  In helping her, he learns that running away is not the answer to solving your problems and discovers that strength can be found where you least expect it.

Written by the author of Mrs. McGillacuddy's Garden Party, Hillary's Wish, and Tropical Depression.
