Cold Train Coming
It's 1942 and America is at war. This book captures the essence of a simpler time in American history, a setting in which a boy struggles to understand a looming adult world that is overwhelming and mysterious. Filled with humour and emotion, it is a coming-of-age story that takes you back to the bittersweet days of adolescence.
