Worth
A. LaFaye

Nathaniel busted his leg and can't do farm work anymore, so his father adopts another son through the Orphan Train. Feeling replaced and useless, Nathaniel attends school for the first time. Meanwhile, John is able to do the work that earns Pa's attention. But John Worth has his own set of troubles. He has no one, until a community battle and a special book reveal a potential friend—and a chance for understanding.
