Summary"The St. Louis, a luxury ocean liner, leaves Germany in 1939, taking its almost one thousand passengers to a safe haven across the ocean. They will be making a fresh start in countries like Cuba and the United States, away from the Nazi regime that is trying to destroy them. Lisa and her family have a large cabin in first class, while Sol and his parents are below in tourist class... Sol and Lisa's optimism is threatened when the ship is not allowed to dock in Cuba. What the children don't know is that their change for refuge is in jeopardy and a darker future might lie ahead for the Jewish passengers on board." —Back cover
