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.

So I have already established that the cover for this book is amazing. It’s gorgeous and I wish I could dive right into that scene! But guess what? The plot sounds awesome as well!

I think this could be a really fun, different contemporary book! I can’t wait!

  1. I’m really excited for this one, too. In fact, I have it scheduled for a WoW post in the very near future. 🙂 I love that cover, too, but I’m sold on that summary! It’s not like I don’t have enough awesome reads on my pile already, but I still can’t wait for April! Here’s my WoW post! Happy Wednesday! 😀

  2. This one sounds really unique which is hard to find nowadays. It’s sad that I haven’t seen this one around much. I hope it’s as good as it looks. And that cover is so eye catching and beautiful!

  3. How did I not know about this book? It sounds amazing and that cover. I must have it in a hardback copy. Thanks for introducing us. 🙂
