MY THOUGHTS:  This book is listed as Junior Fiction at my library.  I've found some really good books in this section.  This is one of them.   This Boundless is a train, but not just any train.  It's a super train and it's carrying 109 cars and a double decker engine to pull it.  It has 1st, 2cd, 3rd classes, the colonist class, a full circus, with animals, equipment and people, plus the are lots of freight trains.  Will is holding the key to the funeral car that's carrying the man who build the railroad.  Inside is a treasure of items.  And someone wants them at any cost.  They are after Will, but the circus people hide him from them.  As they make their way towards the engine, where Will's dad is, they have to fight off brakemen that are chasing them.  Will they make it in time?  Read this book it's great.  I give this book 5......

This book is for 3 of my reading challenges......
