Author Ismée Williams discusses her latest contemporary young adult novel, This Train is Being Held. The inspiration for this book came from a ride on the NYC subway, the same subway line that she took every day to go to work at the hospital where she was a pediatric cardiologist. This Train is a Being Held is a romance with characters of Latinx identity, and it shows a slice of NYC life. Ultimate, it’s a story about expectations—about who you are versus what your family, friends and society expect you to be.
