The Weekly Reader

Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline

Orphan Train is a former New York Times Best Seller and described as "Rich in detail and epic in scope, Orphan Train is a powerful novel of upheaval and resilience, of unexpected friendship, and of the secrets we carry that keep us from finding out who we are."

This book is recommended by the Learning Common's Judi Dirks. Judi says "Since my mother, who will be 97 in April, had a childhood friend who lived this experience, it was especially interesting to me. It's not only historically significant but also includes insights, interviews, and more. An easy read but definitely holds your interest."
