1. In these sections of the book, two main characters are introduced. Molly is a seventeen-year-old girl in foster care in 2011, and Niamh (“Neev”) was a girl who rode the orphan train in 1929. They each have a prized possession. Describe each girl’s possession and tell why it is important to her.
2. Do you or does someone you know have a possession that has sentimental value? If so, and if you would like to share the information with your class, please tell us about it. If you don’t know of a possession that has sentimental value, describe something of yours that could be handed down and have sentimental value because it would remind the new owner of you.
