Young Adult - ages 15 and up. Samantha is a high school junior who has just begun dating the boy of her dreams when her country is attacked by enemy soldiers. Because she is separated from her family at the outset, she must make a long, dangerous journey in hopes of rendezvousing with her family. Through Sam's eyes, the reader sees the many faces of war, particularly in terms of civilian suffering. She quickly learns that her history books hardly touched the realities of war. Sam also learns that she has far greater resources, resiliency, and perseverance than she ever imagined, including a deep compassion for those who suffer.
