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