The girls in Maia's class told her what to expect when she reached the Brazilian jungle. 'There are huge mosquitoes which bite you. You turn as yellow as a lemon and then you die.' But Maia, an orphan, can't wait to start the long sea voyage. She is to begin a new life with relatives she has never met, a thousand miles up the Amazon river. And Maia's classmates could never, even in their wildest dreams, imagine the adventures that await her on the shores of the River Sea.
