The Circus (US Only)

by: Olivia Levez

Release Date: June 13, 2017

Publisher: Oneworld Publications

About the Book:

Willow has staged runaways ever since she was a little girl. But why? She has everything a young person could want: a rich daddy, clothes, money, a pony and a place at a prestigious board-ing school. In reality, she has everything except the thing she really wants: a father who cares enough to find her.

Aged sixteen, on the eve of her father’s wedding to a horrible American she nicknames “The Handbag,” Willow ruins the bride’s dress and escapes through a window, determined never to return. Her missing mother was a circus performer, and Willow wants to follow in her footsteps. But the performers she meets don’t want her.

When her last bit of money is stolen by Suze, another runaway girl she thought she could trust, Willow becomes really homeless. Then Suze comes tumbling back into her life and a desperate Willow has to decide whether to trust her all over again . . .

So begins their frightening, exhilarating odyssey though hunger, performance, desperation and dreams. Will they both survive — will Willow make it to THE CIRCUS?

Olivia Levez takes you into the very heart of a girl who wants so hard to be lost, but saves herself through a powerful friendship and the awakening of a need for home.

About the Author:

OLIVIA LEVEZ divides her time between teaching English and binge-writing in her caravan by the sea. Olivia likes hula-hooping, yoga and real ale, but not at the same time.

Her first novel, THE ISLAND, was lauded by critics and readers alike, and named one of the three best YA Books of 2016 by BookRiot.

I love the cover, especially the colors. Very bright and eye-catching.
The synopsis started out great, but I feel like it gives away too much information.

The cover seems a bit childish, but the synopsis is the type of book I like to read. So the cover seems not very coherent with the synopsis in my opinion.

The cover is bright and colorful but doesn't tell you much about the synopsis. It is a story I would like to read.

The cover looks cute and playful.

As for the synopsis...

It sounds like a fun and adventurous read and I really like the premise for this book. Which makes me wonder why the ratings on Goodreads are all over the place! Regardless, I'm definitely going to be reading this book and finding out for myself.
