I ease myself back in the window seat
and breathe in
as the train breathes out

Lemons as big as oranges, the cool Pacific Ocean, mountains that rise up beyond the outstretched bay—California beckons as one girl makes her way west on a journey filled with excitement, hope, and the promise of place where people from all paths come together.

This is the true story of author Joyce cArol Thomas's trip from Oklahoma to California in 1948, when she moved there as a girl. During that time, many people were drawn by warmth and possibility, reflected in the people of all cultures and ethnicities who started a new life there.

Coretta Scott King winners Joyce CArol Thomas and Floyd Cooper have captured the anticipation of a world filled with freedom and opportunity.
