On the Blue Comet

    By

    Trains and time travel spur one boy's thrilling adventure as he seek to rejoin his father in this new classic.One day in a house at the end of Lucifer Street, on the Mississippi River side of Cairo, Illinois, eleven-year-old Oscar Ogilvee's life is changed forever. The Crash of 1929 has rippled across the country, and Oscar's dad must sell their home - with all their cherished model trains - and head west in search of work. Forced to move in with his humourless Aunt Carmen and his teasing cousin Willa Sue, Oscar is lonely and miserable - until he meets a mysterious drifter and witnesses a crime so stunning it catapults Oscar on an incredible journey from coast to coast, from one decade to another.
