What would you do? As far as I'm concerned, there's no excuse not to be decent...Especially when you're responsible for a kid. It just figures that fifteen-year old Victoria's dad fails once again to be at the train station like he's promised. Fuming, Victoria watches as a teen mom stashes her bruised little boy in the train's bathroom. When the mom gets off the train alone, Victoria decides she has had it with all the poor excuses who call themselves parents. Making a split-second decision, Victoria boards the next train out of town-taking the little boy with her. No, really, what would you do? Victoria's staying on the run until everyone responsible starts keeping their promises. This kid's not falling through the cracks. Not on her watch.

This is an ok book, it didn't have much passion in it. It was sort of dull

I really liked it. You really got to know Victoria, and the reasons why she did what she did. The ending wasn't all that great, but the rest of the book was.

I think this is one of the best books I've ever read, and would reccomend it to anyone. It's an easy read and very heart warming. You can't wait to get to the end and you really get into it. The only reason I didn't give it a five was because the ending really sucked. But still worth reading.
