Please note that each title will be mailed in the middle of the month preceding the month listed on the schedule, and is scheduled for your club for 3 months. For example, January’s title will be mailed around December 15th so it will be received by January. Your club will read it in January, discuss it at your February meeting, and it will be due back at the State Library by March 8th.


Penobscot Indian Molly Ayer is close to “aging out” out of the foster care system. A community service position helping an elderly woman clean out her home is the only thing keeping Molly out of juvie and worse...

As she helps Vivian sort through her possessions and memories, Molly learns that she and Vivian aren’t as different as they seem to be. A young Irish immigrant orphaned in New York City, Vivian was put on a train to the Midwest with hundreds of other children whose destinies would be determined by luck and chance.


Molly discovers that she has the power to help Vivian find answers to mysteries that have haunted her for her entire life—answers that will ultimately free them both.
