Lunch-Box Dream by Tony Abbott
I absolutely loved the part where Bobby described what it must have been like for the people so long ago to all wait for the train that carried Lincoln's body. For that image alone, Lunch-Box Dream should belong with some of the classics of literature.
I wasn't expecting much from this book because I had read Firegirl, by the same author, and found that it followed a standard literary formula. Lunch-Box Dream was much better. I will have Bobby's imagined image of the people standing at the tracks at night waiting in me forever.
