Every year it is the same. 1 child arrives on the boat and another, the eldest child, leaves. The new child falls under the care of the new elder child and so it goes year after year. But now it's Jinny's turn. The boat has just taken her best friend Deen and she is in charse of Ess. But Jinny is conflicted - she doesn't want to leave. What would happen if she broke the rules? This was haunting and in the end left more questions than answers but it was beautifully written. Would be one to discuss for sure.
