At first I was not a very big fan of this book. I thought that the main character, Lib, was a complete and total brat, and needed a SERIOUS attitude adjustment. But as the trials increased, she became a better person. Which I was VERY glad of. All in all it was not a total disappointment, but it did not in the end hold up to my expectations. Some of her past, was a little disturbing, and I wish they had not brought it up. So over all, I do not recommend this book. If you read it, that is fine, but I defiantly am not going to tell you that you need to go and buy this book. (sorry to all of those people out there that this was there favorite book.)


Fourteen-year-old Libby didn't want to go on a year long sailing adventure with her mother and her stepfather, Duncan, and she isn't about to let them forget it. Traveling through the Red Sea, Libby causes them to be late and make a dangerous crossing alone. When modern-day pirates attack, Duncan is killed and Libby's mother is left seriously injured and unconscious. Libby is left alone on a crippled boat to find safety and help for her mother. Libby must call on all her strength and face some hard truths about herself if she is to survive and reach land.
