Ethan can barely believe it. Until now, his biggest problems have been trying to stay in one school without getting expelled ... and finding his next drink. But after Ethan's drunken imitation of the school's headmaster goes up on YouTube, his father steps in with a shockingly drastic measure. Now Ethan is sprawled in the sand ... in the Sahara Desert. Alone.

According to his father's letter, Ethan must trek 200 kilometres across the desert to the city of Tunis, with the help of a guide and three other young people. Confused, hungover, and--if he is truthful--more than a little scared, Ethan has no choice. He will face sandstorms, vipers, and agonizingly painful blisters ... but, most painful of all, he will confront his inner demons and come to a true realization of who he really is.

This was a great inspirational book! I've always known that I can do anything I set my mind too, but this book makes me believe it even more. Eric Walters is my all time favorite author and he came to my school once and he is very comical and funny. I learned from him that some things in this book are true and some are just made up. Yes the one man did actually have his toe nails removed... Great book! ENjoy it :)
