"Wavewalker," I said, exploring the edges of the word. This boat would walk us over the waves, carrying us around the world and back again' Aged just seven, Suzanne Heywood set sail with her family on a three-year voyage around the world. What followed turned instead into a decade-long way of life, through storms, shipwrecks, reefs and isolation, with little formal schooling.

Suzanne fought her parents, longing to return to England and to education and stability. This memoir covers her astonishing upbringing, a survival story of a child in dire circumstances deprived of safety, friendships, schooling, occasionally drinking water... At eighteen, through resolve and resilience, Suzanne earned a place at Oxford university and returned to the UK.
