really liked it
Read from December 14 to 17, 2012

"Showtime" is a great book! The author is an exceptional writer who came up with a really great and unique plot! The story takes place in 1918 and it is about a 16 year old girl named Laila. Laila was brought up in a hard life, with a prostitute as a mother, and her father attempted suicide leaving him "mentally crippled". She had the chance to join the circus and leave her horrible past behind her. Laila's character grew alot throughout the novel and she was a very relatable and likeable girl.

In fact, a lot of the characters in the novel were very likeable. The author has a great eye to detail and she was able to bring all the characters to life in the book, as well as the circus itself. This book actually made me want to be part of a circus group. Learning the art of the aerialists was very interesting. I really enjoyed the characters of James, Dex, and Jodelle. And Vivian made a great villian. I also liked the relationship between Dex and Laila. I am excited for the next book in this series so I can learn more about Dex. I am also excited to see what else will happen to this group of friends; I am wondering if Bethany may be James' sister? I will definetly be buying the next book when it is out!!!

The book was exciting from the first chapter which contained a lot of drama and this drama continued throughout the whole book, especially in the last few pages! I recommend this book to everyone! I give it a 4.5/5!!!
