The circus at the end of the sea

Lori R. Snyder (Author)
"Maddy Adriana knows that magic is real. All her life, her heart has pulled her toward things too perfect to be ordinary, things no one else can see. And then there's the bracelet she's worn since she was a baby; a bracelet that grows as she grows and doesn't come off. Knowing that magic exists has made it a little easier to be a foster kid bounced between homes. Then, one day, Maddy feels a ... tug. It leads her to Il Circo delle Strade, the magical street circus lurking within the canals, boardwalks, and beaches of Venice, California. Amid murals that come to life and trampolines made of starlight, Maddy knows that she's finally found the source of the magic--and once she meets Skeeter Chen (the Fastest Boy on Wheels) and Ophelia (the mimic octopus) ... well, maybe she's even found a place where, for the first time ever, she can truly belong. So when she learns that Il Circo is in trouble, she offers to help. The journey will take Maddy to the end of the sea and back. Along the way, she must find a way to face the frightening side of magic as well as her own deepest fears if she is to save the place she hopes to finally call home." -- Provided by publisher
