Stormy Seas: Stories of Young Boat Refugees by Mary Beth Leatherdale

Travel from pre-World War II Europe right to present-day North Africa, and experience the harrowing real journeys of five young people who fled their homes, risking their lives on the open seas to seek refuge elsewhere. In vivid and riveting detail, each storyteller reveals how he or she was forced to leave behind everything familiar in search of peace and security. And how, with enormous courage and remarkable resilience, each overcame horrific obstacles and found hope in what life can be.
