Release Date: April 2013

A music-obsessed, slightly snarky New York City girl, Lexi is on her own. After making a huge mistake—and facing a terrible tragedy— Lexi has no choice but to track down her long-absent mother. Rumor has it that Lexi’s mom is somewhere in Florida with a traveling circus.

When Lexi arrives at her new, three-ring reality, her mom isn’t there…but her destiny might be. Surrounded by tigers, elephants, and trapeze artists, Lexi finds some surprising friends and an even more surprising chance at true love. She even lucks into a spot as the circus’s fortune teller, reading tarot cards and making predictions.


But then Lexi’s ex-best friend from home shows up, and suddenly it’s Lexi’s own future that’s thrown into question… 
With humor, wisdom, and a dazzlingly fresh voice, this debut reminds us of the magic of circus tents, city lights, first kisses, last heartaches, and the importance of an excellent playlist.

I love all things circus! I own a documentary about Cirque du Soleil and have watched a mini series about the Big Apple Circus. Seriously, I cannot wait for this book. It sounds amazing!!

    4. LOLOLOL!! This is so true, but I'm going to say I'd be bad at that too. Or I hope I would ;) You should watch the Big Apple Circus. Most of the employees are uneducated or have had jailtime. Super interesting!
