The Skeleton Train tells the story of Jason Audley, a contemporary Huck Finn. To others, Jason appears alienated, even troubled. Yet inside he’s resourceful, forgiving, and sometimes daring. Jason narrates his story with wry wit, combining his wild quest for a missing girl with his internal quest for understanding. Along the way, Jason encounters other sojourners, both helpful and dangerous. And Jason discovers that the path he chooses can have deadly consequences.
