The Boundless by Kenneth Oppel
I read this book because it won the Lone Star award. It is a fantasy/adventure novel about a boy who is looking for adventure and his own story and finds it aboard The Boundless, a 5 mile long train on it's first dangerous journey. There are many legends woven into the story - sasquatch, some hag woman, and a circus man named Dorian, whose story you may recognize. I personally did not find the story interesting enough to keep my attention and I started skimming through it after I reached halfway. I think that kids may enjoy it though.
