    Kindle Orphan Train PDF ò ↠ izmirescort.pro orphan pdf, train pdf, Orphan Train PDF/EPUBBefore I became a fosteradoptive parent I would have ranked this book much higher But it rankled that yet another novel characterizes a foster mom as racist shrill emotionally abusive and selfish Oh and the foster parents are just in it for the money And of course Molly is just misunderstood with no serious behavioral problems or alienating ualities Except for a nose ring gasp and a tendency to steal high brow literature oh my And of course everyone ends up happy and joyful on the final page with the message that all the trauma and strife was a necessary part of the story reuired to bring them to this place of understanding Yuck oversimplified and naive Edited to add many people in the comments have told me in no uncertain terms to get over it That the foster care system is horrible that the book is from Molly's perspective that I'm extrapolating And maybe I am particularly sensitive about the foster mom

    Kindle Orphan Train PDF ò ↠ izmirescort.pro orphan pdf, train pdf, Orphan Train PDF/EPUBI find the orphan trains to be an interestinghorrifying time in our history I thought this book would give me a deeper understanding of what it was like to be a child enslaved by this plan concocted by the Children's Aid Society Instead I found this to be a fluffy shallow story chock full of huge stereotypes Let's see we have the sexually perverted foster dad the Goth girl the upstanding drafted man the 91 year old lady who hoarded her life in the attic Each character was painted with broad strokes that created no space for this reader to wonder or develop compassion The two narratives did not work for me at all Although it was very easy to keep the stories straight neither story was compelling Both story lines were painfully predictable The events which allowed the plot to plod along were often ridiculous Mol

    Kindle Orphan Train PDF ò ↠ izmirescort.pro orphan pdf, train pdf, Orphan Train PDF/EPUBThe real truth behind this wonderful story is actually uite awful in magnitude Between 1854 and 1929 than 20000 homeless orphaned or abandoned children were sent to the Midwest ostensibly for adoption but often became indentured servitude to people who wanted a worker rather than a child It is a little known fact of America's history and one I knew nothing about I love it when an author sends me hurrying to Google in order to learn about certain facts I've learned from their books Christina Baker Kline has definitely achieved that here how could I possibly finish the novel and not need to know about these orphan trains Kline very courteously relays many other facts and her sources in the Acknowledgements including photographs; the little boo

    Kindle Orphan Train PDF ò ↠ izmirescort.pro orphan pdf, train pdf, Orphan Train PDF/EPUBI was going to say this book reads like a YA novel but then I realized that is an insult to some really well written YA novels The Giver To Kill a Mockingbird Flowers for Algernon Like many other readers I thought the book had potential with a very interesting subject orphan trains but the writing was amateurish with incredibly stereotypical characters a predictable plot and way too much sentimentality I doubted throughout the book that the author had any firsthand experience with orphans Native Americans or the modern day foster care system If she does it did not come through in her writing The plot lines wrapped up so neatly that I thought I was watching a Hallmark Channel movie for a minute On the plus side I comm

    Kindle Orphan Train PDF ò ↠ izmirescort.pro orphan pdf, train pdf, Orphan Train PDF/EPUBFrom what I can tell this book is not classified primarily as a young adult novel It definitely should be The writing style is very simplistic and elementary which is fine for a YA book I was just expecting something a little adult in terms of the writing styleThat said I think the subject of the book is very interesting I found VivianNiamh's story fascinating and I learned a lot about something in our country's history I knew nothing about The ending was a little too neat and contrived but I can forgive that because the rest of Vivian's story was so rich and fascinatingI'm not rating this book higher because of Molly Her perspecitve seemed completely gutted of any depth It's pretty clear that the author only intended Molly to be a vehicle for Vivian's story which is disappointing to me because I think the juxtaposition of Molly's and Vivian's stories would have so much depth if Molly's character was developed The conflicts she goes through are too hastily resolved
