I am an 8th grade girl who read this book as an independent reading assignment.


I loved the book and the messages it leaves. The book begins with Molly, an orphan girl in living in a foster home. Her foster mother is upset with her but they soon overcome it.

Next, we meet Vivian, a nine-year-old Irish girl in the 's who goes by Niamh and must board the orphan train. In the present day, Molly and Vivian meet in the present day, when she is Molly needs community service hours because she's been caught stealing a book from the library.

Vivian's attic is full of stuff and Molly's job is to help clean it out. This sets the stage for the interweaving of two tales: Vivian's difficult past as an orphan and Molly's present as a foster child. We then see their stories unfold throughout the book.

Orphan Train is a wonderful novel filled with comparisons of Molly and Vivian. Vivian's story is the subject of the book, the Orphan Train.

She had emigrated from Ireland with her family as a young girl. At age nine her family was killed in a tenement fire. She, along with hundreds of other orphans was put on a train headed to Minnesota where, it was hoped they would find people to adopt them. Both are moved many times from home to home and Vivian, though her troubles are more extreme, relates to Molly and they form a friendship that crosses generations.

Vivian was first taken home by a family who only wanted free labor. They would lock the refrigerator, make her sleep in the hallway, and wouldn't let her use the indoor restroom. It went from bad to worse. The next family was extremely poor, with many kids, whom Vivian was expected to take care of. None of the parents worked and the dad would hunt squirrels for the family to eat.

All of the children shared a room and the mother was very rude to her. Thanks to her kind teacher at school, who took pity on Vivian, she was rescued and her life began to improve dramatically. Vivian found a happy home and a family that adopted her and gave her the name Vivian, after their daughter who had died.

She ends up having a good life. Molly's life is hard but not as hard as Vivian's. Even though her foster parents don't love her and make her eat meat when she is a vegetarian, she isn't treated like slave labor. Learning of Vivian's harsh childhood gives her perspective on her own life and hope for a better future.

Throughout the book, the two women bond and learn from each other. This is a great historical fiction novel. The only thing I disliked about this book is that it is based on real events in America's history. I loved this book and would recommend it to anyone looking for a heart-warming tale.

There's a problem loading this menu right now. When she is caught, she gets 50 hours of community service in order this incident could be erased from her record.

The girl wipes off her make-up, takes off her Goth clothes and goes to Vivian — that old lady — to meet her face-to-face. She gets the job and it is cleaning an attic.

This work proves to be far more interesting than Molly could ever imagine. She learns about Vivian more and more every day.

It turns out to be that she also used to have the same problems with foster parents. Many years ago, she had a different name, Niamh, typically Irish and completely strange for New York.

All her family died in the fire and the girl was put on a train for homeless and parentless children in order to find new homes for them. She met a boy there who quickly became her friend. He was chosen during their first stop and before he left he promised to find her.

Niamh found her new family too.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. At age nine her family was killed in a tenement fire. Plymouth, IN These trains carried children to adoptive families for 75 years, from the mid-nineteenth century to the start of the Great Depression.

But as Molly helps Vivian sort through her keepsakes and possessions, she discovers that she and Vivian aren't as different as they appear.
