In the 1860s, opportunities for a young farm girl on the outskirts of Montreal are slim. Lizzy has two choices: Take an apprenticeship and save her family farm, or run away to save herself from the life that’s been decided for her—and follow her dreams.
When the circus comes to town, the choice is easy—but she quickly realizes that no decision is black and white. As mysterious things start happening within her newfound family, she’ll have to fight to save her friends and herself.
Loosely based on the amazing and nearly unbelievable life of high wheel cycling legend Louise Armaindo, The Strong Girl is an action-packed adventure that reminds girls of any age that anything is possible.
