Review: I went galaxies and beyond when I read the book Circus Galacticus. I loved the book Circus Galacticus, written by Deva Fagan. The main characters are Trix and Nola. Trix is an orphan whose parents died when she was young, and Nola is a friend Trix makes when she boards the circus.
One day, Trix goes on a field trip to the circus with her orphanage group. At the circus, she abandons her class and falls into the circus through the Hall of Mirrors. Trix had read about the Hall of Mirrors on a poster hanging up at the orphanage before the circus, which is why she abandons the orphanage's group at the circus. After she falls into the circus tent, she meets Nola who is a tech; a tech is someone who helps with the technology of the show. To find out where someone will perform in the circus, they have to take tests and Mrs. Three decides where they will perform. Trix is placed as a clown, and this opens a world for her- here on Earth and then millions of galaxies away. Read Circus Galacticus to experience exploding chocolate desserts, space leeches, and many other oddities with Trix.
Circus Galacticus is an excellent book and deserves four out of five stars. I give it only four stars because the beginning is a little confusing. However, it is worth the little bit of confusing start. Once you get through the beginning you are sure to never want to stop reading. In the middle there are many amazing details. All of the details make you feel as if you are almost in the story. This book is a great book and shows you to always believe in your self. It also shows the meaning of friendship and to never give up. Deva Fagan is a truly amazing author. If you like Sci-Fi and adventure be sure to read Deva Fagan's book Circus Galacticus.
