Riches to Rags by Penny Estelle (Book Review)

Dylan Jones, seventh grader at Langdon Middle School lives the good life. His family has money. He gets most everything he wants. Even so, everybody likes Dylan ’cause he is a happy go lucky kid. 

Miss Wickware, his seventh grade history teacher, tells the class they will be studying the United States in the late 1800 for the next few weeks. Everybody will be expected to present an oral report on a subject that is drawn from a box. Dylan draws The Orphan Train.

A penniless Dylan finds himself at the train station in New York in 1875 and he is as scared and unsure as the children getting ready to ride the Orphan Train. How will Dylan make it when money is nowhere to be found?

(review request submitted by the author for an honest critique) 
This is a great book for people of all ages.
Why? Because of one important reason. It reminds us to appreciate what we have in life because it can all vanish in a blink of an eye. Dylan learned this lesson up close and personal. An experience he shall never forget.
