4 starred reviews! "Heartbreaking, hilarious, and life-affirming" (Ami Polonsky, author of Gracefully Grayson and Threads)

Rydr is on a train heading east, leaving California, where her gramma can't take care of her anymore, and traveling to Chicago, to live with an unknown relative. She brings with her a backpack, memories both happy and sad, and a box containing something very important.

As Rydr meets her fellow passengers and learns their stories, her own story begins to emerge. It's one of sadness and heartache, and one Rydr would sometimes like to forget.

But as much as Rydr may want to run away from her past, on the train she finds that hope and forgiveness are all around her, and most importantly, within her, if she's willing to look for it.

From Publishers Weekly Flying Start author Paul Mosier comes a poignant story about a young girl's travels by train from Los Angeles to Chicago in which she learns along the way that she can find family wherever she is. Perfect for fans of Rebecca Stead and Sharon Creech.

display_description After the death of her drug-addicted mother, thirteen-year-old Rydr makes a journey from Palm Springs, California to Chicago where she'll live with an elderly great-uncle who she's never met and whose ultimate motive in taking her in seems to be to increase his monthly welfare check. During her train ride, alongside her Amtrak escort, Dorothea, she meets other passengers, learns their stories, and finds a sense of family and hope among the strangers she befriends.
