It was horrible Tina playfully shoved harold off the base since Conrad was coming but he fell Conrad saw this as her beating him and veered slightly from his path and stomped on her killing her When Conrad stopped Samuel came to get her and hold her for the last few moments of her life From the waist down it appeared as if she wasn't there and her dress looked like paper While walking away with the gypsy he looks back at samuel and sees a orange flash followed by a gunshot farther out in the field he begins to cry as he hears a massive thump on the ground and imagines conrad sinking to the ground The next morning he says good bye to the freaks and leaves for Liberty When he gets back he stands up to all of the bullies not even cowering a little bit and asks them to just let him go home His wish is granted and as he walks up to the door he gets scared to go in but he does anyway He calls for his ma and she comes down the stairs and give him a giant bear hug His dog Honey who he had left behind came and rubbed up against him too he was glad to be back and his mom was glad tooI thought this was a good book but it was a slow paced one I think it wasn't really my type of genre and not really my style of reading It had a predictable plot that i could see half way through the book Overall I have seen better books but this was great in its own ways This book started out as a story full of bullying and stayed that way for about two chapters Then Harold The main character went to the circus and met two of the circus' sideshow freaks Princess Minikin or Tina is an adult lady that is about the size of a 9 year old But has the heart as big as the sea On the other hand the fossil or Samuel is larger than the average man and is covered with fur like a Sasuatch Although they were

L King a sideshow attraction who's an albino too He's touched that Princess Minikin and the Fossil Man two other sideshow curiosities embrace him like a son He's in love with Flip the pretty and beguiling horse trainer and awed by the all knowing Gypsy Magda Most of all Harold is proud of trainin. Harold Kline is an albino In his home town of Liberty he is picked on and called rude names like whitey and maggot Harold's only friend is his dog named Honey Not to mention Harold's father died in a war and his brother is fighting in the war and has been pronounced MIA missing in action One day while fishing at the Rattlesnake Harold meets a very unlikely duo Their names are Samuel and Tina Samuel is big hairy and very rude to Harold Tina is the opposite Tina is short really short Tina is also kindhearted In the circus their names are The Living Fossil and Princess Minikin Honey refuses to leave when Harold decides it is time to go so he leaves her On his way home Harold hears of The Cannibal King from Hopalong The Cannibal King is from Oola Boola Mumbo and is albino like Harold This interests him While discussing the Cannibal King with Hopalong Honey arrives with a note Inside the note is a ticket to the circus from Tina and Samuel Harold rushes home to tell his mother who tells him he cannot go Harold is infuriated He decides to sneak off and go to the circus anyways Harold only gets two things a ball and a bat from his brother David When Harold arrives at the circus he finds the circus has packed up and left already But low and behold an old Indian named Thunder Wakes Him is there and offers Harold a ride to the next destination of the circus After riding with Thunder Wakes Him Harold meets up with Samuel and Tina and the trio set off by themselves The truck gets stopped so they meet the Gypsy Magda She warns him she tells him to “Beware the beast with unnatural charm and the beast who food with its tail A wild man is meek and a dark ones pale” I applaud you Iain Laurence for such amazing foreshadowing Upon arrival Harold meets Flip She is stunning and get this has unnatural charm Flip uses Harold to teach the elephants how to play baseball for her own personal agenda Towards the end Flip reviles that she is marrying Roman a rude rigger who picks on Harold Conrad one of the elephants who is learning how to play baseball tramples Tina and kills her This sends the circus a wreck Harold finds out that the Cannibal King isn’t a king or a cannibal He is just a normal guy from Canada What about Thunder Wakes Him Well inspiringly he isn’t an Indian It’s all makeup I hated this book I knew from the very begging that this book was a giant metaphor for acceptance The plot was very slow at times and I couldn’t relate to any of the characters Also the so called plot twist was predictable Overall not enjoyable

Ghost BoyHarold Kline is an albino an outcast Folks stare and taunt calling him Ghost Boy It's been that way for all of his 14 years So when the circus comes to town Harold runs off to join itFull of colorful performers the circus seems like the answer to Harold's loneliness He's eager to meet the Canniba. I liked the book ok because it did have a few boring parts and the ending left me thinking there was going to be a seuel The book is about an albino boy named Harold Kline He runs away from his home in Liberty USA to go to the circus He meets Mr Hunter Tina Princess Minikin Samuel the Fossil Man the Gypsy Magda Flip the horse trainer Roman the rigger and Wicks the cook When he meets Flip he falls for her instantly He does anything and everything for her including abandoning the freaks Tina Samuel and the Gypsy Magda When the Gypsy Magda predicts death Harold doesn't think he has much to worry about until Tina is play fighting with him but makes one of the elephants Conrad think she's trying to beat him up Conrad tramples Tina killing her and fullfilling the prediction the Gypsy Magda made Mr Hunter then must shoot Conrad fearing that he may do something like this again In the end Flip marries Roman and Harold just goes home I think Iain Lawrence could've made a seuel by having Harold run into the circus again and end up on another adventure Overall I'd give this book 3 stars
