    1. I bought this book when I was on a love story kick because I was assured it was a love story Although there is a bit of romance, this book is so much about figuring out who you are, growing up, and dealing with tragedy I thought this book was a solid effort despite some badly written parts not that I could do any better but still Ellen Spangle is the ringmaster s daughter, but despite the glamour of the circus, she hates her life She wants so much than to be the staring act with her sister, th [...]


    2. Whatever this is listed as, I d put this as solidly middle grade YA EVERYTHING is obvious Characters are paper thin and clich d The love was dull, dull, dull I couldn t even care when something traumatic happened to one of the main characters This story is about two sisters who are major acts in their family s circus The main character secretly wants to leave the circus, the other sister loves the spotlight There s some rich toff that falls in love with the main character and then randomly right [...]


    3. Before i d read this book, i knew nothing about circus life I suppose it was as strange to me as Eastern customs are to people in the West, and i enjoyed reading about the Spangles s lives immensely I especially love the ambitious Ellen, and how hauntingly beautiful her character is Lucy just annoyed me but that s what the author wanted reactions to be i m sure I did love how vivacious Lucy s character was, even in what little of the time she got in the book It started off with a typical day in [...]


    4. Ellen is an important member of a 19th century English circus family, but she s unhappy and wants out of life than the circus A terrible tragedy forces her to examine her feelings about life and love This book isn t bad but it isn t great either It s kind of sad and I was disappointed with Ellen s choice.


    5. I ask you, how many novels have been written about circus families in 19th century England with heavy focus on animal acts, and featuring girls on horseback NOT MANY How awesome was this Pretty darn awesome.


    6. Ellen is indeed a talented and smart person Everything come s out to her naturally Maybe not seen earlier because she steps out for the people she love dearly but her beautiful heart made it clear to everyone what she s worth.


    7. I liked this, it was dramatic and entertaining and reminded me irresistably of Mr Galliano s Circus by Enid Blyton Ah, those crazy eccentric circus folk I found the main character a little drippy but still, a good read.
