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 suitcase, memories both happy and sad, and a box containing something very important. As Rydr meets her fellow passengers and learns their stories, her own past begins to emerge. And as much as Rydr may want to forget about her life in California, on the train she finds that maybe her past can help her deal with her present. And maybe hope and forgiveness are all around her and, most important, within her, if she's willing to look for it.

With her mother and grandmother both dead, Rydr finds herself on a train heading east, experiencing a series of emotions as she heads toward an uncertain future to live with a relative she’s never met. Her train ride turns out to be mentally agonizing yet curative.
Mosier has created a character who seems real with her conflicting emotions. I felt like I was riding along with Rydr, wincing at her pain and smiling at her hopeful moments. A great character-based title for grades 4-7.
