Synopsis:

Set in a turn-of-the-century carnival, this new work from the author of "Blood and Chocolate" tells the story of a normal boy whose parents perform with other "abnormalities of nature." Determined to make a life for himself outside the freak show, Abel Dandy finds fortune and romance in the most unexpected places.

Synopsis:

A striking historical fiction YA debut about a wayward girl amid the freaks and sideshows of a late-1930s traveling circus.

Synopsis:

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, step inside Moscos Traveling Wonder Show, a menagerie of human curiosities and misfits guaranteed to astound and amaze! But perhaps the strangest act of Moscos display is Portia Remini, a normal among the freaks, on the run from McGreavys Home for Wayward Girls, where Mister watches and waits. He said he would always find Portia, that she could never leave. Free at last, Portia begins a new life on the bally, seeking answers about her fathers disappearance. Will she find him before Mister finds her? Its a story for the ages, and like everyone who enters the Wonder Show, Portia will never be the same.

About the Author

andlt;bandgt;Annette Curtis Klauseandlt;/bandgt; was born in Bristol, England, and moved to the United States when she was a teenager. As a child she spouted such fanciful ideas that her peers thought she was an oddity. Having an imagination turned out to be valuable — she grew up to become a storyteller. Annette currently lives in the Maryland suburbs with her husband and six cats. Three are from SiameseRescue.org, but none are actually Siamese twins — although one is the fastest cat on three legs and another likes to balance on top of the scratching post like a circus cat. Annette still works full-time as a children's librarian. Bouncing around like a giant bunny during preschool story time is just another way of being paid to be odd, she says.
