Where is the rest of the story? Surely this isn't all that's left of this story. Maybe Kristiana has another book where this leads off. I certainly hope so. I need to know whatever happened to Dan and Judd's little sister. Did they ever go and get her from the nun's? What about orphan Smokey Joe? Did he finally come to live with them? I loved this book all the way to the end but really disappointed in the ending. There's so many unanswered questions and that's why I can only give it 3 stars.

Great book!

I absolutely loved, loved, LOVED this book. Heartfelt, real, incredibly historical. Any adult or child
will feel like they're living in Bodie in the late 1800s while reading about it.

I highly recommend this book. In fact, I recommend ALL off Kristiana Gregory's books.
They are all works of art.

Danny and Judd are two lonely orphan brothers eager to find parents. They don't remember much about their family but do know some of their aunts and uncles names and whereabouts. One day, when six year old Judd was about to get adopted, Danny and Judd ran around because they did not want to be separated leaving their infant sister, Susanna, with the nuns. After a night of hiding the bought a train ticket to Bodie so they could find their Uncle. When they arrived they roomed with a very kind foster dad named Captain Billy until they could find their uncle. When their uncle arrived with his Chinese girlfriend, Lu-Chen, Danny did not want to leave with him because while he roomed with Captain Billy's other foster kids he met a boy named Smokey Joe who taught him some things. One of the things he was taught was to stay away from Chinese people because they were up to no good. After almost losing his little brother because of an illness, Danny finally accepts Lu-Chen and moves away with them as a family. Orphan Runaways is an excellent read for any child because it teaches to accept people for who they are not their appearance.

I like the setting in this book. This book takes place in Bodie, CA near the gold mining times. In the time period of when this story takes place, Chinese Americans were not accepted and did not have full civil rights. This is what causes the problem because even though Danny wants a family he also doesn't accept his uncle being with a Chinese girl.

I also like the moral in this book. The moral is to accept for who they are not their appearance. Even though Lu-Chen was Chinese she was a US citizen because she was born in the US. Danny also found out that Lu-Chen was a very kind and loving person once you got to know her. She taught Danny and the reader not to judge someone by the outside but the inside.

Lastly I like the resolution in the story. At the end Judd came down with a deadly illness and had to be cared for. Knowing Lu-Chen's culture and that she had lots of natural medicines and herbs Danny took Judd to her. Lu-Chen nursed Judd back to health and Danny suddenly noticed that someone else loved him and Judd as their parents did. Then their uncle got a job offer from his brother causing them to move. So they packed their bags and moved becoming one big happy family. I like this resolution because it was very appropriate for what Danny and Judd had to go through.

In conclusion I would recommend this book to any child because of the setting, moral, and resolution. These elements not only made the story interesting but teaches lessons used in life. This entire book takes the reader on an adventure and lets them experience what it is like being an orphan. Orphan Runaways is a great read for all children.

I had anticipated a cute historical fiction novel about two brothers, much like the Boxcar Children Series, but instead I was pleasantly surprised to find a greatly researched historical fiction story. Danny and his younger brother Judd leave the orphanage in search of relatives. Because they don't have very much money, Danny opts to go and find their Uncle Hank in California's gold country. Danny carries his pride and keeps he and his brother as well as a twelve year old in the 1880's can. He meets a host of interesting people that add flavor to the history and sense of community that existed in the mining towns. In another part of this well weaved story, Kristina Gregory opts to focus intermittently on the racism that existed in the United States and California during this era. Danny must come to his own conclusion of how other people should be treated. With some help from local people Danny reaches a conclusion that he can ultimately live with. Two nice notes in the book, in the final pages, the author shares some of her research, including a picture of a woman she brings to life in the pages of her tale, a historical map of the area Danny and Judd ultimately call home, and a glossary.

The book is rated on a reading level of 5, but is written that perhaps some Californian 8th graders might enjoy the story as an addition to their exploration of the United States Western Expansion.
