"Entrancingly magical journey that's half Midwestern Miyazaki, half Mad Men, and all Windy City"   ~  Windy City Reviews   

There is magic in the city...

In Chicago, a secret L train runs through the mythical East Side. On that train, you'll discover fantastical truths about the city, alongside the most fascinating cast of characters, including one exceptional girl by the name of Francesca Finnegan. 

Once upon an autumn night, Francesca invited a boy named Richard aboard the secret L, for an adventure through the East Side. The night was a mad epic, complete with gravity-defying first kisses, spectral whiskey, fabled Ferris wheels, and more, as the pair traveled through past and present city landmarks such as the famed Green Mill Cocktail Lounge, Dunning Mental Asylum, and Riverview Amusement Park. Unfortunately for Richard, the night ended like one of those elusive dreams, forgotten the moment you wake. Now, Richard is all grown up and out of childish adventures, a humdrum adult whose life is on the verge of ruin. It will take the rediscovery of his exploits with Francesca, and a reacquaintance with the boy he once was, to save him. 

Witty, humorous, and at times profound, this modern fairytale teaches a lesson - one that adult readers are sure to benefit from.
