Throughout national upheaval and family turmoil, these spirited young characters transform hardship into an opportunity for growth.

When, in the midst of the Depression, Harry James Harmony runs away from his foster family to find his father, he doesn't count on all the complications that come with stowing away on trains -- or with finding a policeman and social worker hot on his trail. Meeting up with Poke, another runaway, the two boys try to hop trains from Bridgeport, Connecticut to Chicago, living off Poke's street smarts and Harry's music. But what will Harry do when his only friend betrays him? Will he find his father? And will he ever be at peace with thememories of his troubled past?
