Summary (From the publisher):

"The sliding-door of the railway truck closed with a deafening bang."

So begins Alice's journey. But where is she going? The men who come to her house to take Alice and her grandparents away in the middle of the night will say only that they are being taken "to the east." At first Alice is excited - at last she will be allowed to play outside after being confined to the basement for so long, and maybe she will be reunited with her parents. But the train ride isn't at all what Alice expects. There are no seats or lavatories - only a dark, airless cattle car crammed with people. And as she gets to know her follow passengers, Alice's eyes are opened to the facts of life, the horrors of death and the terrifying truth about her final destination.
