Keith Duzenski | 2 comments I read this book in middle school, I was born 1981 i was probably 12,13,14 at the time.

Here's what I remember from the book.
The main character may have been named "Nico LaFlambe"
He travels across a country, not sure which. Hops on a train car, and possibly took a job at a bowling alley, may be living behind where the pins are set.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

D.M. Dutcher  | 340 comments I think this is "High Road Home" by William Corbin. There's no goodreads entry, but it was reprinted in 1984. A snippet from google books:

"Nico La Flamme came to the United States to hunt for his father, whom all authorities believed to be dead. His search began in Cleveland and went west all the way to the coast. In the course of his adventures, Nico discovers America, both the beautiful and the not-so-beautiful."
