So I’m introducing a new YA coming-of-age novel. Gangs, anarchists, runaways and freight hoppers.
Feeling pressured and trapped from his life in a group home for “special cases”, James (aka-JesseJames) runs away one night and hops on the back of a freight train hoping to escape his constant flashbacks and an abusive professor. Finding himself wrapped up in a world he didn’t know existed, things start out as an adventure with a do-or-die learning curve, but slowly problems begin to mount and his situation starts gaining speed.
Especially when he finds true love in the form of a seemingly harmless girlfriend with a past of her own. Desperate to keep his family safe, he must fight to keep everything he loves and cares about from careening off the rails on a speeding train.
