Waiting on Wednesday (87)

WoW is hosted by Breaking the Spine

Spring 2013 from Scholastic Print
"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."
I am in all kinds of love with this summary and this cover (excluding the font). I have very high hopes for this book :)

What are you waiting on this week?

  1. I hadn't heard of this before but it sounds good. I'm not a fan of the circus but it would be interesting to read what circus life is like in modern times (I've read Water for Elephants which is set in the early 20th century).

  2. Sound really good. I first fell in love with circus girls thanks to Enid Blyton's sassy character Carlotta, a girl sent to an English boarding school who is utterly fearless and as the gymnastics teacher soon discovers, able to outshine all the girls climbing up ropes, etc. There's something magical about the circus even if I don't believe in the keeping of wild animals...even a normal circus has that ethereal quality that Morgenstern's book The Night Circus had...and then there's Water for Elephants. Nice pick :)

  9. I think it'd be a lot of fun to be a fortune teller at a circus. But the thing that most intrigues me is the ex-best friend. I want to know more about him/her.
