An intriguing and twisty book.

The story: Callie is just a girl who loves to surf. When her mom sends her to her uncle for the summer, her entire life changes. The uncle lives on an island surrounded by the most bizarre circus you can find where ghosts run the show, the gorgeous ringmaster holds a dark danger, and no one can leave— including her.

What I loved: I’ve never read a book like this and that adds to the intrigue. The circus of the dead is gross and creepy and so vividly painted I could almost see it.
The characters are something else entirely. With the exception of Callie, we don’t know who is good or who is bad. It’s fantastic twisty fun. This book is so outside my normal reads that I couldn’t even begin to guess what would happen next.

What was just okay:
Sometimes the pacing was slow, but only for short periods of time before it ramped up again.

Final Verdict:
A fun, unique, and well written story that’ll have you staying up late into the night to find out what happens next.
