    Paul Mosier(Author)

A beautifully poignant debut perfect for fans of authors such as Rebecca Stead and Sharon Creech and books like Ali Benjamin’s The Thing About Jellyfish. When Rydr travels by train from Los Angeles to Chicago, she learns along the way that she can find family wherever she is.

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.

A harrowing, moving, immersive, and ultimately uplifting debut novel. --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"In his first novel, Mosier offers a cast of well-drawn characters, an unusual setting, and a rewarding reading experience. --Booklist (starred review)"An emotionally expansive and deeply affecting story. Heartbreaking and unforgettable. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)"Rydr herself is sympathetic, and she s got a believable voice, a mix of vulnerability, edginess, and raw fury at her rotten luck. Readers who like drama, sentiment, and tidy, tearful endings may find this to be the ticket. --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"In this debut novel, Mosier gives middle grade readers a character who battles life's challenges with extreme honesty and doesn't sugarcoat her inner battles. A tale that will stay with readers long after they reach the final destination.--School Library Journal"Rydr herself is sympathetic, and she's got a believable voice, a mix of vulnerability, edginess, and raw fury at her rotten luck.
