The shots were so close they seemed to explode inside Vithy's head. He threw himself to the ground and clapped his hands over his ears . . .
It's Cambodia. The killing machine that is the Khmer Rouge is in power. Vithy has lost everyone and everything he loved – except his older brother, Mang. They've escaped from almost certain execution, but the brothers become separated and Vithy is left alone to 'follow the lines . . . to the border' – his brother's last instructions.
But which lines? Which border?
A gripping tale of the journey of a boy alone and in danger as he tries to find his brother and escape to freedom.
