The Circus in Me was completely unique and refreshing to anything I have ever read. Tracey Aliza is young Amish girl, who wanting to escape her way of life runs away and joins the circus, becoming Trae Lae. Joining the circus opens Trae Lae to a world of different opportunities, allowing her to enroll in a Mormon college and opening her heart to the possibilities on falling in love for the first time.
The Circus in Me is a beautifully written story, almost poetic in its wording. I loved the idea of reading a story about an Amish girl escaping her life, it is a completely different concept to what I have previously read and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
The book is very descriptive and I felt myself transported to the world S.M. Bjarnson has created. The characters are well developed and unique. It was refreshing to read about such a different protagonist for a change, she is formal and old fashioned and I found her extremely likable. Trae Lae is just a young girl trying to find herself in a completely new world.
The Circus in Me is an enjoyable, unique story that left me wanting more of Trae Lae and Briggs. I would like to thank S.M. Bjarnson for the opportunity to read your amazing new book.
