A gripping novel about an incredible journey behind enemy lines, told in diary form.

Fourteen-year-old Evan Warrender travels with his father to the Dardenelles, where they intend to provide succour to the Allied soldiers. When they are captured by the Turks, they are launched into an epic journey, living on their wits and the kindness of strangers as they escape and travel through Turkey, back to Greece and finally home to Australia. Along the way they meet unlikely friends and companions, some of whom have deep secrets. And when Evan's own secret is revealed, we realise just how incredible the journey has truly been.

Evan's fascinating survival story takes readers beyond the frontline and creates an all-encompassing account of this significant time in our military history. Impeccably researched, this is an eye-opening adventure story that cleverly explores both sides of the war.
