Review by

A young woman and a young boy travel together. When they arrive at the air port, a gurd asks about the tube of tooth paste that is in their bags. Because heroin is found from it! Then, they are arrested. Are they innocent? They and the yung girl's mother seek the truth.I thought this book was difficult to understand because it was about the serious case but it was written in simple English and it was easy to understand. So I think everyone enjoys this book!

I like stories which use its characters' setting. I forgot the mother was a doctor. It is a interesting story.

Sarah is in the prison,because there are heroin in her bag.She tlaveled her boyfriend. Then she and her byfriend were arrested by plice.However she didn't know the heroin.She afraid of death penalty.If she didin't do it,who did it,and why?I think this story is interesting for me because it is not simple story,so I can't understand the end of this story.I feel feeling of girl from this book. I think heroin has very strong power and it can destroy everything.
