    1. This is a pretty sobering look at Australia's detention policy but also super important for understanding why current refugee processes across the world are not sustainable. This is the first long firm journalism piece I've read so it took a while for me to get used to the 'reporter' style language which strives to report the facts without emotional or sensationalised language (due to the sensitive legal line the author is probably walking). The most important thing I took away from this book is [...]

    2. This is an important book at a critical time for Australia. Our country's policies on asylum seekers are appalling. I have no doubt we will look back on this period in history with a sense of shame. I hope that by publishing this book, we can influence ordinary Australians to question the nation's offshore detention policies and press for change, and influence our political leaders to take a stand rather than allowing these atrocities to continue on their watch.This is what World Vision Australi [...]

    3. "Our world needs more love, more acceptance, more generosity, more compassion. Justice is a struggle. Don't be disheartened. Don't give up." Thus concludes, not the book itself, but the acknowledgements section and I feel it sets the tone for the "why" of this book being written.This book is a crucial if harrowing read. Some readers have accused it of being "disjointed" but I think that it is simply that the facts that are there about that night are similarly disjointed, no smooth narrative can [...]

    4. An important story, but not one that is told well. The chapters are disjointed and there are so many people mentioned, so it is hard to follow a story.
