I CANT BELIEVE TFIOS AND DIVERGENT LOST TO DIARY OF A WIMPY KID AT THE KIDS CHOICE AWARDS HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?!

Thanks to @SheReads BookClub I received a copy of Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline.   Molly, a troubled teen, uncovers an older woman, Vivan's, past while completing her community service hours.   But this story is more unique because the background is the real life time in history when orphans were taken on trains to be distributed to new families. . . many times as indentured servants.   I could not put this book down!
