Summary
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
Summary
Taking a train journey from her elderly grandmother's home in California to live in Chicago with an unknown relative, young Rydr holds a suitcase filled with memories and bonds with fellow passengers while seeking the hope and forgiveness she needs to start over
