The Girl on the Tube

Teen fiction from a biblical worldview

Rachel Allord


A realistic, contemporary novel for teens from a biblical worldview

Twelve-year-old Addie Brown wants to fit in. But ever since she and her dad moved from small town America to bustling London, life is as bumpy as the Tube she rides to school. Addie’s cranky neighbour tells her off but then invites her to tea! It seems as if Addie’s best friend in America has already forgotten all about her. Worst of all, Addie’s dad doesn’t seem any happier than before, even though moving across the pond was his crazy idea.

But the biggest mystery Addie encounters is the lady in the green hat. Who is she? And why does she appear on the train when Addie is missing home – and her mom – the most?

Selected endorsements:

"This gripping story speaks of the common teenage experience of searching for deep friendships and real belonging. I was cheering for Addie the whole way through - just like I cheer for my daughter. The Gospel is in there!"

Ed Drew, Director of Faith in Kids

“Amazing! Five stars! Addie is a very relatable character and the book captures the feelings of a newly-moved tween.”

The Girl on the Tube

What a fun read with loveable characters! This book was light-hearted while also showing a young girl work through the difficulties of grief and transitions such as moving country. This is the kind of book I found so helpful around the age of 11 as I thought about how to live life and thought about my relationship with God.
