    1. I think a lot of people are really missing the focus of this book The writing isn t brilliant and it s aimed toward a younger audience, but the message is one that gets swept under the rug all too easily I don t believe this book is about a so called messed up kid or inexperienced parents It s about a faulty education system that is so futile to escape A system that refuses to bend to meet individual s needs and wants to turn students into numbers and profit margins I have never lived in Austral [...]


    2. This is one of the most underrated can be found in secondhand bookshops gem type of book It was a very light read but nonetheless, it still managed to deliver a deep understanding and perspective from the mind of a emotionally challenged individual Definitely worth the read.



    3. After reading this book, I had nightmares where the world had literally turned upside down I woke up crying and couldn t sleep for days Read this book if you re interested in what it s like to have a mental disorder it s accurate, if you want to feel awful for no reason, or if you want to see what you get by riding the night train.I would not recommend it if you re purely curious, and you don t have any other motives Yes, I know that you re mature and can take some things, but this isn t a book [...]


    4. Utterly predictable.Exactly the kind of book I hope other parents, my adolescent daughter, her peers, and my middle level students throw in the waste bin as it perpetuates the woe is me, nobody ever listens to me BS people use for an excuse when they are unwilling to attempt to communicate with one another.


    5. Depressing.But that was the point This is trying to show how some people end up feeling Honestly, thought the main character, Luke isn t even that bad Its his parents that really messed with me His mother was utterly passive, his father was avoiding everythingHis little sister, possible had OCD.


    6. Night Train, Judith Clarke, The author discusses several interesting points The quality of our educators, the difference between what is said and not said, and the need to try and establish a dialogue with our children.


    7. I was blown away At first I thought it wasn t going to get anywhere but by the middle I couldn t put the book down The ending made me so upset but at the same time I expected it Though the ending did take it a step farther Well done and written It was a nice easy read for the night.


    8. His family, peers, and teachers despair of eighteen year old Luke, who seems to have turned himself into a loser, failing at school, paralyzed with fear and indecision, losing touch with reality.
