VBT# Runaway Train - Lee Matthew Goldberg

Runaway Train (Runaway Train, #1)

Review: Runaway Train - Book #1 Runaway Train - Lee Matthew Goldberg - April 2021

When I first saw this book offered, I was sitting on the fence and then another email came calling for more reviewers and I was like actually, it does sound like something I might enjoy, and decided to give it a go. I ended up enjoying this book more than I thought I would. Runaway Train is set in 1993 and our main character experiences not only one death but throughout the novel - three deaths. The first is her sister Kristen and then River Phoenix and then the death of Kurt Cobain that will be Nico's turning point in the story. The book follows her journey of finding herself and re-discovering who she is as she is constantly spiraling and her life is out of control. When Kristen dies, Nico writes a bucket list of things to complete and when River Phoenix dies - the idea of running away and finding herself comes to play, and then when Kurt Cobain dies, she realizes her life has come full circle and it is time to face reality. But is it a reality that she wants to face or would she prefer to join those in the 27 Club? One of my favorite things about this book was the way the author had captured the authenticity of the period setting of the 1993 grunge era and the impact that Kurt Cobain's death had made on the world especially those who lived in Seattle.
