Bahrain, 1970.

After a summer spent with her family, fifteen-year-old Anna is flying back to boarding school in England when her plane is hijacked by Palestinian terrorists and taken to the Jordanian desert.

Demands are issued. If they are not met, the terrorists will blow up the plane, killing all hostages. The heat becomes unbearable; food and water supplies dwindle. All alone, Anna begins to face the possibility that she may never see her family again.

Inspired by true events in the author’s life, this is a story about ordinary people facing agonizing horror with courage and resilience.

Includes Q&A with the author.
