by Gillian Rubinstein
Joella, her brother Peter and her sister Liane, are kidnapped and transported to become pets and entertainers for an alien species. Many of the performing children are desaparecidos, the disappeared, kidnapped from third world slums, and chosen for their extraordinary gymnastic ability. For the children, there is only one escape from the Galax-Arena: out of the door and into death.
