Rodzina, a 12-year-old girl, is placed on a train with other orphans that travels from Chicago to the West.

For me, this was a good story, but a great way to learn how it must have felt being an orphan and placed on a train that goes to unfamiliar places with unfamiliar people.  It's a perfect story for children, though.  The time period was depicted well and understanding what was happening to these children was clearly described.  Rodzina was a great character that expressed the many thoughts, feelings, and fears that went along with being on an orphan train.
