Eighteen-year-old Ruby Santos spends a lot of time on the BART trains in San Francisco, travelling to jobs as a painter and decorator. Her mother is dead, and she and her father are trying to pay off the large debts incurred for her medical care, so college is on hold. Her father struggles with drug and alcohol addiction too, making life even harder. She’s always suspected something was up but learns that her father has the ability to magically hop trains, leaving one to appear on another, sometimes even across the other side of the world. He’s been working as a mule for the Bartholomews, the city’s most ruthless criminal family, and now as his health deteriorates, Ruby must take over. When she falls, Romeo and Juliet like, for the Bartholomew’s youngest son, also forced to work as a mule, she becomes increasingly determined to find a way out.

This is an unusual, atmospheric fantasy romance sustained by the magic of the rattling trains of the San Francisco metro and the force of personality of its lead characters.
