I came across this on accident I was looking for Wonder through my public libraries digital site and instead of finding the book I needed I found this Just from the cover I had a feeling that this was going to be an interesting book and I was right From the start to the finish it was interesting I won't say I loved it but I did not hate it Instead I just liked it Most of the time I found myself liking a character than disliking them It played with my emotions But in an enjoyable way

Portia is a great character She is headstrong she is charming but rough around the edges and I really enjoyed reading about her I like how the perspective shifted so that it wasn't all told by her and you got a bit of the way other characters thoughts worked The plot rolled along nicely although seemed to end rather abruptly and in a way that wasn't very satisfying A good piece of teenage fiction set in the declining age of the freak show

Read This Review More Like It On My BlogI knew pretty early on that I was really going to enjoy this fairly short novel and I was repeatedly proven right while reading this charming debut Though Hannah Barnaby and therefore Portia's tale is a bit short on action and long on character like another recently released circus themed novel I was hooked from chapter one and Portia herself I felt that the final conflict lacked a bit of emotional pull or immediacy but nearly everything else from this look into Mosco's Traveling Wonder Show was pure fun to read I'm happy to say that Hannah Barnaby emerges from her first novel as a solid and compelling storyteller with a flair for the dramatic and the uniue just like her indomitable leadPortia is a flawed but very likeable protagonist; though her story is mostly told in third person omniscient and occasionally oddly features other first person perspective important characters Portia is the strongest most developed character of the lot While I truly disliked the shifts between first and third perspectives it's easy to fall into any narrative in the story be it P's or the Jackal or Gideon or even Mosco Portia made me laugh but mostly and most importantly Portia made me care about her story; made me invest in her happiness and actively cheer for her success and lament over her losses Her inuisitive nature and love of words Stories came easily to Portia Lies came even easily and often p 13 ARC endeared her to me rather uickly and her adventures with Aunt Sophie and subseuent misadventures at the McGreavey Home for Wayward Girls only impressed me with her spirit and livelinessWhile the 'freaks' advertised for the Gallery of Human Oddities didn't uite live up to the hype of the synopsis and blurb I am not disappointed; rather instead I believe that is the whole point of Wonder Show that those who society considers freaks are really just people like us living the hand they are dealt In fact the only truly freakish character within the entirety of Wonder Show is the antagonist of the piece ominously referred to only as The Mister someone not hidden away and hated on principle but someone trusted with power and the futures of young girls The other characters thoguh they don't compel like Portia or creep you out like Mister each have believable and distinct voices Like Portia the population of the Wonder Show is at large on the run from somethingtimeone they'd like to forget or change While no two characters plot was the same outside of Portia I found the Jackal and the deteriorating Marvel family to be the most accessible In fact while I was far from a fan of the weirdly switching POV's used to alternate character inner monologues not person to person but 3rd omniscient to 1st I wouldn't have hated an even longer look into those charactersThough I was expecting to be involved and invested in the ending I felt it was solid but very much not the climactic epic tête à tête I had been craving because Mister needed his ass kicked anticipating And I have to admit that though this is a middle grade novel it doesn't read like one and I feel that people of all ages would enjoy the adventures and marvels that make Wonder Show so fun to read in the first place This is a uick read with a large reward for your minimal efforts; full of charm and adventures Wonder Show is welll uite wonderful indeed
