That Time I Joined the Circus by J.J. Howard

Expected publication: April 1st 2013 by Scholastic Point

goodreads|  amazon | BookDepository

Such a beautiful cover!!! 

A music-obsessed, slightly snarky New York City girl, Lexi is on her own. After making a huge mistake—and facing a terrible tragedy— Lexi has no choice but to track down her long-absent mother. Rumor has it that Lexi’s mom is somewhere in Florida with a traveling circus.

When Lexi arrives at her new, three-ring reality, her mom isn’t there…but her destiny might be. Surrounded by tigers, elephants, and trapeze artists, Lexi finds some surprising friends and an even more surprising chance at true love. She even lucks into a spot as the circus’s fortune teller, reading tarot cards and making predictions.

But then Lexi’s ex-best friend from home shows up, and suddenly it’s Lexi’s own future that’s thrown into question…

With humor, wisdom, and a dazzlingly fresh voice, this debut reminds us of the magic of circus tents, city lights, first kisses, last heartaches, and the importance of an excellent playlist.(


Snarky? YES please! Circus? How awesome!! I’m super excited for this book! It sounds super unique and yes, I love the snark!

Much Love,

  1. Yes Danny! I’d love to be able to say that to someone. “Remember the time I joined the circus…” Instead, I’ll read about it! Can’t wait for this one. Not much longer!

  2. I haven’t heard about this book before, but it sounds really interesting! I wonder how her ex-best friend has the power to change Lexi’s future… I like how the book cover is illuminated with all of that light. It looks like it’s glowing-what an awesome effect! Great WOW pick Danny!

  3. But unfortunately a few react badly to milk and it actually makes them ill and affects
    baby development. In the summer, milk replacer can spoil and grow harmful bacteria.

    My son was very fussy as a very young baby and it took me a
    while to figure out why he was always so upset.
