A thought provoking and inspiring story written for emerging readers, particularly those who are offenders, disaffected or at risk. Alec loves his job in the Royal Navy. His new mission is to save refugees from unsafe boats. But when a daring rescue attempt goes wrong, Alec is the one who needs saving. Who will come to help him? A story that will appeal to adults but written at the reading level of a seven to eleven year old. Alec is away from home for key family events - something that many prisoners will also have struggled with. The story will lead to discussions about prejudice and social responsibility as well as living in confined quarters and missing home.
