You've Gotta Read This!

I just finished reading The Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline for a book club recently.  Wow!  Great book!  If you're looking for a great read, then read this.  It's a historical fiction, which I love, about a little girl's journey on the Orphan Train in the early 1900's.  

I admit it, but growing up I wasn't really into history.  So needless to say, I had never heard of the Orphan Train before.  But this book really opened my eyes to this time in history.  Plus parts of the book were set in Minnesota.  So it's always fun to read stories that are 'close to home'.

This isn't very light-hearted, but would be a great book for your summer reading list.
