Train to Somewhere (Google eBook)
Marianne, heading west with fourteen other children on an Orphan Train, is sure her mother will show up at one of the stations along the way. When her mother left Marianne at the orphanage, hadn't she promised she'd come for her after making a new life in the West? Stop after stop goes by, and there's no sign of her mother in the crowds that come to look over the children. No one shows any interest in adopting shy, plain Marianne, either. But that's all right: She has to be free for her mother to claim her. Then the train pulls into its final stop, a town called Somewhere . . .

This historical fiction book, by Eve Bunting, tells the story of homeless children on the "Orphan Train," who travel west looking for a place to call home. Set in the late 1870s era, Bunting does a great job of describing the setting in the story, with help from the great painted illustrations. The story is mainly centered around two little girls, sisters actually, who get separated as different couples adopt them off of the train. Students will enjoy reading this story which sets up a great way to talk to students about orphans, families, and even a specific time period in history. The way Bunting repeats the phrases in the book, "I'm waiting for you, mama," as the girl wishes her biological mother would come to adopt her, will make students feel a easy connection to the text.
