Crossing the Tracks

After the untimely death of her mother, 15-year-old Iris Baldwin --- the main character of Barbara Stuber's debut novel, CROSSING THE TRACKS --- is having a hard time feeling like she belongs, especially since her emotionally absent, "BS salesman" of a father prefers spending time at work or with his new girlfriend instead of with his family. Unexpectedly sent away to rural Missouri --- and far from her only friend, Leroy --- she embarks on an adventure in the hopes of finding the family she never knew had while ultimately finding strength, courage, and love in the process.
