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.
