Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, step inside Mosco's Traveling Wonder Show, a menagerie of human curiosities and misfits guaranteed to astound and amaze! But perhaps the strangest act of Mosco's display is Portia Remini, a normal among the freaks, on the run from McGreavy's Home for Wayward Girls, where Mister watches and waits. He said he would always find Portia, that she could never leave. Free at last, Portia begins a new life on the bally, seeking answers about her father's disappearance. Will she find him before Mister finds her? It's a story for the ages, and like everyone who enters the Wonder Show, Portia will never be the same.

Several weeks ago I was home sick and downloaded this book to my Kindle. It's everything I like in a good YA novel! Suspense, intrigue, a little bit of darkness, a little bit of light. At the end you've been on a journey where you feel fulfilled and whole; you've learned something again you already knew. Recommended by Jeffrey

Telling the story from different characters' point of view was interesting. The happy ending was realistic although it came kind of fast.

A wonderful idea for a story. the ending was so sweet and happy. She/ main character deserves her happy ending with her friends who become her family.
