    I really liked this book, I found it very interesting. The book was based on real events, so I got to learn more about things that happened in the past while reading a really good book. I liked this book because of multiple things. I liked the plot line and the adventure mystery genre. The characters were also very well structured and they worked well together. My favorite character is either Tim or Marie because they are both very supportive of Lizzy when she is in the circus and they both try to help her fit in with her new life and they both push her hard but they also help her to be herself. I could barely put this book down and I would highly recommend it for kids from 10 – 13 years old, or kids who are uncomfortable with themselves or aren’t appreciated for who they are. This book was amazing and it really helped me feel better about myself. -Ayleigh Creech
