A quirk of fate leaves eleven year-old Katie in the control of strangers in a foreign country. What is their intent? How can she figure out what will happen to her when she doesn't speak their language? Why are they keeping her, will she be able to find some way to free herself? Will she ever be able to return to her own country, her own family? Put yourself in Katie's shoes, if you dare!  (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2003-2004)
