Title: Circus Summer
Author: Kailin Gow
Published: June 5, 2012
Every season, the Circus of Curiosities visits the city, bringing with it the most fantastic circus acts that are beautiful, majestic, and death-defying. Every season performers for these acts are chosen from the young men and women in each town, trained, and sent to perform in a televised performance, performed literally to the death.So I picked this one because two novels immediately spring to mind when I read the synopsis: The Hunger Games and The Night Circus. It's seriously like they had a baby, which makes me want to read this to see if it's a straight rip off, or if it's coincidental that it sounds like those two novels. If it's different than those two novels, then this book would be AWESOME.
Two performers from Sea Cliff, a beach town at the outskirts of the major city find themselves chosen to be in this Summer's Circus Act. Both must win at any cost, but could they ignore their budding feelings for each other?
