The book deals with platform outreach and focuses on shelters close to the stations. The reuniting process is examined from a practical as well as a child-rights perspective. It expands the horizons of analysis by presenting the system prevailing in the UK as a counterpoint, thus highlighting the concerns and current thinking on institutional care and fostering at an international level.

The book delves into the research it has undertaken over the years to try and evolve the best ways to handle runaway children and find a future for them...the book is sprinkled with real life stories that make the book much more poignant...the strength of the book is to be able to look at processes objectively in order to evolve better practices.
This book presents the issues and challenges of reaching out the `railway children'.... This book is different. It includes a number of stories, most with sad beginnings and some with happy ending...the purpose of the stories is to show how complex the problem can be, and demonstrate the failures and successes of those who try to deal with it.-- The Pioneer, 1 June 2014
