Description


Luke can't sleep. And even when he's awake, everything is a haze; he can't engage. The senior exams are approaching, and he hasn't finished the writing folder for Ms. Brennan. Worse yet, his mother doesn't understand what's wrong and his sister Molly has begun to hate him. And Luke's dad, well, he hasn't spoken to Luke in months. Mrs. Lewis is right: Luke is in the top intelligence bracket of the population--he should be sailing through school.
As Luke slowly and unwillingly disengages from everyone he loves, he has one consolation: if he can prove to himself that the train that he alone hears at night is real--that the night train exists--then maybe his problems are not all in his head.

New Hope for American Art was authored, designed and published by James M. Alterman, an expert in the field of Pennsylvania Impressionist and Modernist painting. A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye. The book offers valuable tips on how to avoid common mistakes often experienced by new collectors drawn from the author's personal experiences as a collector and fine art dealer.
