Hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine
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.

This cover is just beautiful, the way your eyes travel all around, taking in the whole picture. The stars and the sparkling lights really capture my eye. I love it! I'm not going to lie, it's one of the reasons why I even looked twice at this book but it's definitely not why I stayed. The summary talks about music being a central focus of this novel and music is definitely a central focus in my life. Also, I can't wait to hear all about the circus acts and animals. I just read the first book in the Cirque du Freak series this month and that has a lot to do with a circus (a creepy one, but a circus nonetheless) and I enjoyed all the acts. So I can't wait to read this one. What are you guys waiting for?
