Editorial Reviews

Review

"An out of the ordinary drama set forth with uncommon artistry." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Beautifully crafted from cover to cover." -- Booklist (starred review)

From the Back Cover

The train tracks ran right by Bigmama's house in Cottondale, and the children were warned to stay off the tracks. But one night they were late, and the tracks were a shortcut, so they started off. And when there was no turning back, they heard the train coming.
