A HEART-BREAKING COMEDY ABOUT CIRCUS LIFE AND LIFE ITSELF
 
Henrietta cherishes her family’s kooky existence working as clowns for a small, shabby traveling circus. As far as she is concerned, she has it better than any twelve-year-old on the planet. But one shocking day, life throws a pie right in her kisser—in the form of a hitand-run accident that takes away a loved one. Henrietta must use all her clowning skills and a whole lot more to pick herself up and face a future full of change.

Praise for Henrietta Hornbuckle's Circus of Life

"The clean, engaging third-person narration and rapid-fire dialogue distinguish this artfully concise novel about the inevitability of change, for better or worse. Not only is the straight-shooting style an interesting contrast to the colorful circus backdrop, it echoes Henrietta’s endearingly blunt manner and stubborn nature."   -- Kirkus (STARRED)
 

"...filled with humor, tender moments, and beautiful writing." -- Library Media Connection
