Release Date: April 29, 2021
Summary: They toldme I was an out-of-control train about to crash...
Everything changed when the police officer knockedon the door to tell me –a 16-year-old –that my older sister Kristen had diedof a brain aneurysm. Cue the start of my parents neglecting me and my wholelife spiraling out of control.
I decided now was the perfect time to skip town.It’s the early 90’s, Kurt Cobain runs the grunge music scene and I justexperienced some serious trauma. What’s a girl supposed to do? I didn’t want toend up like Kristen, so I grabbed my bucket list, turned up my mixtape of thegreatest 90’s hits and fled L.A.. The goal was to end up at Kurt Cobain’s housein Seattle, but I never could have guessed what would happen along the way.
At turns heartbreaking, inspiring, andlaugh out loud funny, Runaway Train is a wild journey of a bygone era and aportrait of a one-of-a-kind teenage girl trying to find herself again the onlyway she knows how.
