The year 1919 ended in tragedy for young Corey James. Her life is shattered when a car crash kills her beloved parents and she is forced to live with relatives she has never seen before. Her aunt is verbally and physically abusive until Corey has no recourse but to run away. Disguised as a boy and, with the help of an old hobo, she begins a journey that takes her on a series of adventures, both perilous and heartwarming. As they ride the rails together, Andy Curruthers helps restore Corey’s self-esteem, teaches her about life, and helps form the woman she becomes.
I fell in love with Corey right from the start. She went through so much in her short life. First she looses both parents and then was abused by the people who were supposed to care for her. Finally she’d had enough and ran away. And nothing was going to stop her. I loved Corey’s spunk and determination. Once she set her mind to do something, she’d let little interfere with it getting it done.
This is a wonderful book about her journey to freedom and the people she met along the way. It’s sad, it’s uplifting, it’s a whole lot of emotion packed in a great story, and boy were there lots of interesting characters! And I loved that she took her dog Muffin with her. I wouldn’t have left my dog either.
Sandra Farris did an amazing job writing this book. She also did a great job of choosing a narrator. Steven Cooper did a great job with all the voices.
I would recommend this audio book to anyone, no matter if you’re male or female, young or old(er).
