Summary When the paths of a runaway teenage boy, an old hobo, and a rich girl intersect in an abandoned train yard, each carries their own personal baggage. Over early mornings, long walks, and cheap coffee they discover, no matter how big or small, that it is the simple gifts in life that really make a difference. This special reissue of a bestselling and award-winning Australian classic is a life-affirming look at humanity, generosity, and love
