How did a thirteen-year-old girl end up on ship with all men heading for America? For Charlotte Doyle, she thought two other families would be on the ship. However, where are they? Instead, she has to go on her journey alone.  It is 1832, and Charlotte is embarking on an adventure of a lifetime. Nonetheless, Charlotte is actually headed for danger. On her journey, she will be horrifyingly accused and convicted of murder. Could she do such a thing and why would she? Join Charlotte to find the truth. It begs to ask, who is really guilty of murder?
