CIRCUS MIRANDUS by Cassie Beasley


Even though his awful Great-Aunt Gertrudis doesn’t approve, Micah believes in the stories his dying Grandpa Ephraim tells him of the magical Circus Mirandus: the invisible tiger guarding the gates, the beautiful flying birdwoman, and the magician more powerful than any other—the Man Who Bends Light. Finally, Grandpa Ephraim offers proof. The Circus is real. And the Lightbender owes Ephraim a miracle. With his friend Jenny Mendoza in tow, Micah sets out to find the Circus and the man he believes will save his grandfather.

The only problem is, the Lightbender doesn’t want to keep his promise. And now it’s up to Micah to get the miracle he came for.

It was super late at night when I started this book, and I said to myself, “I’m just gonna read a page or two of Circus Mirandus…”

FIFTY PAGES LATER and this utterly irresistible story of a magic circus, friendship, and a boy’s love for his grandad, had completely stolen my heart. And then of course, I start panicking, because fifty pages had flown by in the blink of an eye, and I NEVER WANTED THIS BOOK TO END. Needless to say, the next day I had the biggest book-hangover of my life.

Every page of this book is captivating and enchanting and magical, interspersed with some desperately poignant moments that’ll find you all glassy-eyed. I have no doubt Circus Mirandus will stay with me for a long time to come.
