Absolutely captivating. This book had me completely immersed in this fascinating world of circus performers. I've actually woken up the past two mornings realizing that I had just been dreaming about these characters; that's how completely absorbed I have become in this story. These two men and the story of their love and dedication to each other and to their art has deeply moved me. There were at least three different points in the story where I was in tears because of the emotional intensity. These boys do not often verbally express their feelings towards one another, but when they do, my God, it hits you. There were also plenty of times I held my breath in almost painful anticipation and fear of what would happen next, particularly going into the last chapter. In the end, I was smiling after turning that last page.

This book is high on my list of favorites.
