THE CIRCUS

Olivia Levez

Willow has everything: a rich daddy, a pony and a place at a prestigious boarding school. Everything except the one thing she really wants: a father who cares enough to find her when she runs away from home.

On the eve of her father’s wedding, Willow runs again into the unknown. Her mother was a circus performer and Willow longs to follow in her footsteps. But when all of her money is stolen and her only friend, a street performer called Suz, betrays her, Willow is left penniless and alone. So begins a gripping, exhilarating journey. Will Willow ever make it to the big top and find a place she can truly call home?

Praise

“A beautiful and unforgettable story about a girl who learns she must lose who she thought she was before she can become who she’s meant to be.”Kirkus Reviews

The Circus has the heart of a lion tamer and the thrill of a trapeze. Raw, compelling, and compassionate, this is a biting and beautiful examination of why we run, what makes a home, and how we find who we are.”Kiran Millwood Hargrave, author of Girl of Ink and Stars

“A punchy explosion of a book – gritty and colourful exploring the complexities of friendship, family and freedom. Wonderful – though I  am now desperate to learn the trapeze.”Kathryn Evans, author of More of Me
