Eighteen-year-old Luke is the only one who hears the night train-just a lone whistle, far in the distance, that only sounds in the dead of night. No one else hears it or even believes that the train exists.
Threatened at school, pressured by his parents, paralyzed by anxiety about his final exams, Luke begins to doubt himself. Is the night train real, or is it only in his mind? If it's real then he's all right; then, no matter how his problems pile up, he can start all over again. If it's not real, Luke fears, then everything could come apart.
In this gripping novel, Judith Clarke delivers a striking view of a troubled teen whose mental world unravels all too quickly.
