Thank you BermudaOnion and Betty Jo! Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen is the story of Jacob Jankowski. When twenty-three year old Jacob, a veterinary student receives the devastating news that his parents were killed in a car accident, he leaves school and jumps a train, only to find out that it is a circus train. A wonderful book!
