Summary:

"In December 1980, when Thao Lam was two years old, her parents made the decision to flee war-torn Vietnam. They piled into a small fishing boat, not knowing where they would end up, just knowing they had to leave. It was the only way they could imagine a future for their family, free of the violence that had ripped their country apart. Inspired by their courage, Thao has reimagined their journey for the next generation, interweaving it with a family legend about a colony of ants that led her mother to safety the night she fled Vietnam."
