Read full description of the books:
Next on my list of rereads from childhood is the second book in the Orphan Train Saga, focusing on Mike, the oldest brother in the Kelly family. Unlike his siblings, Mike is placed in a less than desirable home with the Fredericks. Historically, Mike's story in this book, (he is adopted merely as a hired hand), is probably the most accurate outcome for children placed through the Orphan Train.
The story is a page turner, Mike's adopted brother tries to get him in trouble and sent back to New York City where prison awaits, murder, mystery et. al. It reads like the dime novels of the time that Mike is so fond of. What is also interesting is that Mike acts like how a 12 year old boy would. He jumps to conclusions about his adopted family based on conversations overheard, he's impulsive and out of all the Kelly children so far the most complex.
Caught in the Act, is miles better than the previous installment even though it ends with convenient "happily ever after" ending (Mike is adopted by a new family and cleared of all charges). I look forward to rereading Mike's next book, A Dangerous Promise.

Read information about the authorAuthor of more than one hundred books, Joan Lowery Nixon is the only writer to have won four Edgar Allan Poe Awards for Juvenile Mysteries (and been nominated several other times) from the Mystery Writers of America. Creating contemporary teenage characters who have both a personal problem and a mystery to solve, Nixon captured the attention of legions of teenage readers since the publication of her first YA novel more than twenty years ago. In addition to mystery/suspense novels, she wrote nonfiction and fiction for children and middle graders, as well as several short stories. Nixon was the first person to write novels for teens about the orphan trains of the nineteenth century. She followed those with historical novels about Ellis Island and, more recently for younger readers, Colonial Williamsburg. Joan Lowery Nixon died on June 28, 2003—a great loss for all of us.
