Recommended for ages 6 and up

Lola lives on a house boat called 'The Pea' with her mother. She has no friends other than the presumably crazy, old captain
Solmsen. Since her father vanished into thin air, she has become more of an outsider at her school. She wants nothing to change until he comes back. But suddenly two events tear Lola out of her lonely dream world. One: her mother has a new boyfriend. Lola does everything she can to drive them apart. And then there is Rebin, the mysterious new boy in her class – an illegal Kurdish alien. But by and by the two outsiders become friends. When Rebin's mother falls ill and cannot visit a regular physician, Lola asks her mom's boyfriend Kurt, a vet, to help. The next day, Rebin and his family are gone. The apartment appears to be deserted and Lola is convinced she has done everything wrong.
