Ever since the magnificent Miss Loucien gave up teaching to join the Bright Lights Theater Company, school days have lacked a certain . . . drama . . . especially for Cissy, who longs for a life in show business, and Kookie, who craves adventure. But when a diphtheria outbreak interrupts the dull routine, Cissy and Kookie are evacuated to the doubtful safety of the Bright Lights’ summer home—a shipwrecked paddle steamer on the flooded Missouri River.

Thus begins a wild and unpredictable journey downstream serving up grand performances, aggrieved river gamblers, irate lawmen, and perilous races. And when at long last Cissy steps into the limelight, the stakes are higher than she ever imagined.

Renowned storyteller Geraldine McCaughrean weaves a rip-roaring adventure in this funny tale that’s chock-full of humor and heart.

    " Great characters but a story that jumps the shark over and over again. Kim Ravers is a brilliant narrator and the only thing that got me to the end of the book. (I'd give her a five star review.) "

    " 1890 Adventures and misadventures of two Oklahoma classmates who travel down the Missouri River with traveling actors on a paddleboat, while diphtheria spreads across the land. Sequel to Stop the train! "

    " I wasn't sure that a sequel could measure up to Stop the Train but oh boy, this is just wonderful. "

    " The highly stylized writing makes it more appropriate for reading aloud. "
