Mau is canoeing alone when he gets caught in a giant wave that also hits his home island. He survives to discover that his entire village has been destroyed and everyone killed. Ermintrude is traveling to see her father, heir to the throne of England, when the wave deposits her ship on Mau's island; like Mau, she is the sole survivor. The pair must not only learn to understand each other and survive together, they must also make sense of the mysterious, insistent voices of Mau's ancestors, which hold powerful secrets about the island's past. Winner of the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award. A 2009 Michael L. Printz Honor Book.
