Oscar Ogilvie is living with his dad in a house at the end of Lucifer Street, in Cairo, Illinois, when world events change his life forever. The great stock market crash has rippled across the country, and the bank takes over their home — along with all their cherished model trains. Oscar’s dad is forced to head west in search of work, and Oscar must move in with his no-nonsense aunt Carmen. Only a mysterious drifter who stops by each day for food after school helps alleviate Oscar’s loneliness — until Oscar witnesses a crime so stunning that it catapults him into a miraculous, time-hopping train journey. Filled with suspense and peppered with witty encounters with Hollywood stars and other bigwigs of history, this captivating novel by Rosemary Wells resonates with imagination, humor, and the magic of a timeless adventure story.

    " Wow. I think this is the kind of book where you are like, "What the heck just happened?" I think you also may need to read it twice to understand it. "

    " Historical fiction set during the depression. Lots of stuff about trains. I could not get through it but it would make a good read for train lovers, and any younger kid who likes homespun Americana style historical fiction. Think Garrison Keillor for kids. 3rd grade+ "
