S a secret invitation promising a night of magic and adventure aboard the Night Train she is skeptical In her experience most promises prove too good to be true The fact that she lost her mom is proof enough Still Molly gives hope another chance Together with her loyal friend Noah Wond Not everything in life is as it seems especially when adventure appears for Molly Pepper and she's than ready to take the bait Molly is a curious little girl who refuses to take rules too seriously especially when it involves doughnuts and cinnamon bears Her best friend Noah offers the perfect balance to her sometimes overly zealous character and shows that true friendship does not mean that two people have to think exactly alikeI loved the way reality borders on magic making it clear that sometimes life is really a mixture of both The clues are cleverly laid out and although at times seemingly easy to understand have a deeper meaning in the large scope of things The reader believes to have just figured something out when the next scene reveals that there's even to the plot than first thought The 'bad' guys dangle on the edge of the story through than half of the book adding a wonderful amount of tension and mystery Short chapters are peppered in during the run of the story allowing the reader to get just a peek at what these antagonists are thinking without giving their true purpose away By doing this the reader is kept at the edge of their seat unsure what might happen nextI especially loved the way Molly's father is woven into all of this Although Molly and Noah are out to discover the mystery on their own Molly's father sneaks around in the background secretly prodding his daughter to take the leap into the unknown and discover it for herselfSummed up this is an adventure kids will wish they had the chance to experience themselves There's tension humor and enough heart warming moments to draw readers ages nine and up in and not let them go until long after the very last page This story gets a huge two thumbs up from meI received a free copy in exchange for an honest review

    This is so problematic in so many ways I just couldn't recommend it Which is a real shame because in other ways it's actually very goodThe rest is under the Spoiler tag but for starters the bad guys in this story are FBI agents And not ones that are corrupt or dirty FBI agents doing exactly what they are supposed to do and should doAs a story for MG readers I think it sends many bad and wrong messagesFor those who would like to know this is not Fantasy it's not Magical Realism While certain things are definitely not plausible it's firmly Realistic FictionOk here are some of the issues I had with this story kids probably won't be bothered by them much or at all so this is a heads up to adults considering this for young readers they know view spoilerI think it'd be easiest if I first start off with a summary of the plot Molly is a 12 year old girl who lives with her police officer father Her mother has left she actually died but we're not told that until the very end We get Molly's POV and she's dealing with her grief so all we know through most of the book is her mother is gone and are told she left Molly also believes that all her grandparents are deceased including her maternal grandfather her mother was led to believe died when she the mother was 10 Actually we learn toward the end this grandfather had been convicted of murder and sent to prison This grandfather escaped after being in prison for 13 years At the end when he talks to Molly he tells her he is innocent and was railroaded While the narrative is geared toward sympathy for the grandfather and seems to want us to believe he is innocent and perhaps he actually was all we and Molly knows is that he says soMolly's grandfather has been in her town keeping close to her in ways that don't reveal to her who he is At some point prior to the reveal of this to us Molly's father is also in on this knows about it and helps this grandfather with his plan This plan is to both give Molly a special adventure and also reveal to her who he is He also gives her the choice of helping him escape once again or being caught and taken back to prisonWhew with me so far? OK here are some of my issuesMolly wasn’t really sure why Noah always insisted on being so obedient all the time The way she saw it Noah needed to mess up occasionally That way people wouldn’t always expect perfection out of him And if anybody Noah’s parents expected perfectionNoah is Molly's friend who goes along with her on this adventure I was really unhappy with how being an obedient kid was presented as so negative I just don't think this is a good message for kidsI read uite a bit of MG fiction mostly Fantasy and Sci Fi with a smattering of Realistic Fiction I'm not unaware of the common troupes used to make plots work such as absent or unattending parents kids being mildly disobedient or doing things that are not uite smart or safe And I think I'm a reasonable degree of tolerant of it But I did find here that it was both IMO over the line and bothersome due to the fact that this isn't a Fantasy story so it was harder to dismiss as make believeFollowing clues left by her grandfather but she doesn't know that nor does the reader Molly sneaks out of her house at night to go off with her friend Noah to an address they've been given This story is set in the San Francisco area This bugged me It's not ok for 12 year olds to sneak out of their houses at night to go wandering around because some mysterious note tells them to Sure it made for an interesting story It got my interest But still as an adult I wondered about this message it's sending kidsAnd in my defense I've seen such premises before handled in ways that made them not so problematic So it can be done The fact that we learn at the end her dad was keeping an eye on them doesn't really fix the issue It helps yeah but it's still bothersome IMOWe're also told of police who turn out to be FBI who are surveilling Molly but we really don't know why until the end Of course they are watching her because they believe her grandfather will contact her or led them to him which happens Since he's an escaped convict this is completely reasonable understandable and them doing their actual job But these FBI agents are made the villains of this storyI did not like the story making law enforcement who are doing what they are actually supposed to do as the bad guys What the heck?Molly and Noah at one point meet up with a mysterious man who opens a door for them in an underground area and they enter following the instructions they've been given to get to the Night Train At the end we find out this person was actually her grandfather in disguise but shoot this was creepy He could have been a pedophile or somethingWe get a hint at that point that her father tricked her into deciding to go We learn later that he actually kept a close eye on her so that part is ok but shoot can't he just talk to her??? I understand he and the grandfather wanted to keep things mysterious and adventurous for Molly but still it just seems to me things would have been better all the way around for her dad just to have a talk with her about this stuffHer police officer father manipulates her into deciding to sneak out of the house at night and go off wandering around the city Sure he keeps an eye on her but she doesn't know that He's getting her to do something that would be wrong or dangerous if he didn't know about it and wasn't watching out for her except she doesn't know he knows about it or that he's watching out for her So what's keeping her from thinking it's perfectly fine without his knowledge or his supervision? It's all so twistedThen at the end Molly's grandfather puts it into her hands to decide to choose to help him escape again the FBI are right there nabbing him or allow him to be caught She just lost her mother a few months ago she is TWELVE and she just learned she has a grandfather who loves her And he puts this burden on HER This ticked me offWhat should have happened here is that he should have turned himself in allowed himself to be taken in decided he wanted to make things right the legal way with lawyers and just wanted to talk to her first That could have pulled a bit of this train wreck out of the fire But nope he escapes again and we're made to think this is a wonderful good happy ending PffftThere's I could say but that's the gist of my issues Disobedience euals fun and adventures and obedience is bad FBI agents tracking escaped convicts are bad Sure we're made to think he's innocent but even so it's not ok to just escape and go on the run The police officer father knows about this wanted fugitive but says nothing Sure he's in a sticky spot but stillCan't they get him a good attorney and deal with things legally? Sheesh yes I know that'd be a boring story hide spoiler

    Is it cheesy of me to admit how much I adored this book how wrapped up in the world of Molly Pepper and her best friend Noah I became How I want to watch these two continue to grow into adults watch them fall in love watch how they continue to deal with all the best and worst part of life? This book is a beautiful story about a young girl dealing with tragedy and being swept along on a magical adventure that helps her hold tightly to her memories and look to the future while letting go of her past It is this amazingly complicated story that is told through beautiful imagery a wild adventure and loving words I loved the suspense in Molly Pepper and the Night Train this feeling like at any minute Molly and Noah who are being lead on this crazy adventure are going to get into a sticky situationbut the best part for me as an adult and mom is knowing that the way Courtney King Walker has written the tale I don't have to worry about my young reader because it's clear that even though to Molly this feels like a secret and at times scary outing she is always being watched always being cared for I loved knowing that if she ever fell apart Molly's family are waiting there to catch her but yet they let her take this exciting moment and run with it They let both her and Noah find their own strengths and weaknesses In a time when we have become a society that hovers over our children it is refreshing to read a book about children being able to take on the world on their own but always with the safety net in case they need it See Full Review Here

    Magical This book is a wonderful reminder of the imagination and fun of pre teen years in which nighttime in the neighborhood promises independence adventure and a place to expand your boundaries Molly is discovering her way with a father who works the night shift and her overly anxious and obedient neighbor Noah Together they evade the adults to ride the Night Train where they indulge in the freedom to eat and play on their terms As Molly follows her heart she also has to face her fears I loved this story Molly is both a rebel and a girl in need with whom many kids can relate The book takes place in just a short amount of time allowing the author to delve into the setting and description of this uaint island community the intertwined relationships and Molly's unresolved conflicts Although it is a full length middle grade novel the compressed time table made it feel like a captivating short story It's a book I'd love to share with my nieces and nephews ages 8 12

    My son and I read this together before bed and each night it was like entering another world He loved the idea of being free like Molly on an adventure without grown ups Molly takes a trip on a magical night train and experiences a night circus Both locations are full of mystery and amazing description of foods smells and circus tents The experience was mysterious but not foreboding I as a mother was happy that Molly's dad had a handle on the situation but he didn't spoil the funWhile this is a middle grade book there are some advanced themes dealing with the death of a parent and a grandpa who spent time in prison It kept us guessing while Molly went on her adventure what would happen to these heavier issues she was dealing with and were pleased they were addressed in a positive way that my son understood and related to

    Molly Pepper receives an invitation to expect the unexpected imagine the unimaginable and believe the unbelievable on a ride on the mysterious Night Train She has snuck out of her house and past her policeman father she knows she's being followed by some strange adults but she's determined to have an adventure with her best friend Noah and she certainly doesThis book was charming and boasts one of the sweetest endings in children's literature that I've read in a long time I liked the underlying messages of friendship and loyalty helping each other through hard times and to reach difficult goals and the power of wishes and imagination
