Book Title
Orphan Train
Christina Baker Kline
Orphan Train tells the story of the unlikely friendship between Molly Ayers, a foster-kid hoping to avoid juvie, and Vivian Daly, the elderly woman she has been assigned to help. Shared experience serves to unite them as it comes to light that the aged Vivian spent time on "orphan trains," which ran regularly from the cities of the East Coast to the farmlands of the Midwest from 1854 to 1929, carrying thousands of abandoned children whose fates would be determined by pure luck. The subject matter will grab students' attention because so few people know about this particularly heartbreaking piece of American history and the novel's message of resilience and unlikely bonds will carry them through.Freshman Common Read: University of Alabama (Honors College), University of St. Thomas--Kathleen Kent, New York Times-bestselling author of The Heretic's Daughter and The Traitor's WifeBinding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Christina Baker KlinePublisher: HarperTrophyPublished: 06/30/2020ISBN: 9780062993885Pages: 400Weight: 0.50lbsSize: 7.50h x 4.25w x 1.00dAccelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 168412 / Orphan TrainReading Level: 5.6 / Interest Level: Upper Grade / Point Value: 13
