Twelve-year-old Patrick McWaid's world is turned upside down when his father is framed for a crime and sent on the last prison ship to Australia in 1867. Desperate to keep the family together, the McWaids decide to find passage on another ship headed "down under." But leaving Dublin, Ireland, means leaving the only home they've ever known. And what will they do when they reach Australia?^^Then Patrick learns his grandfather was sent to Australia thirty years before. No one has heard from him in years, but perhaps the senior McWaid might help them if they can only find him. Their hopes high, Patrick and his family set sail. What kind of new life will they find?
