Everything you need to understand or teach Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline.
Orphan Train is the story of two women -- 91-year-old Vivian Daly and 17-year-old Penobscot Indian Molly Ayer -- who forge an unlikely friendship. The story shifts between contemporary 2011 Maine (where Vivian and Molly meet) and 1929 Minnesota, when Vivian rode the "orphan train" to an uncertain future. Through sharing the past, Vivian helps troubled teen Molly deal with her own uncertainties and doubts.
