Waiting on Wednesday: Circus Galacticus

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Visit Breaking the Spine to see more entries!

This week, I am waiting on:

Circus Galacticus by Deva Fagan
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Publication Date: 11.14.11
Rebel. Champion gymnast. Intergalactic traveler?

Trix can deal with being an orphan charity case at a snotty boarding school. She can hold her own when everyone else tells her not to dream big dreams. She can even fight back against the mysterious stranger in a silver mask who tries to steal the meteorite her parents trusted her to protect.

But her life is about to change forever. The Circus Galacticus has come to town, bringing acts to amaze, delight, and terrify. And now the dazzling but enigmatic young Ringmaster has offered Trix the chance to be a part of it.

Soon Trix discovers an entire universe full of deadly enemies and potential friends, not to mention space leeches, ancient alien artifacts, and exploding chocolate desserts. And she just might unravel the secrets of her own past--if she can survive long enough.

I was first attracted to the book by the title; Circus Galacticus just sounds like a book with all sorts of fun. After I read the description though, I was completely hooked. With a traveling galactic circus that will "amaze, delight, and terrify," and an orphan who joins it, Circus Galacticus sounds like a fantastic book...and I HAVE to read it!

What are you waiting on?
