This week I am waiting on
Harley in the Sky by Akemi Dawn Bowman
Publication Date: March 10th, 2020
Harley Milano has dreamed of being a trapeze artist for as long as she can remember. With parents who run a famous circus in Las Vegas, she spends almost every night in the big top watching their lead aerialist perform, wishing with all her soul that she could be up there herself one day.
After a huge fight with her parents, who continue to insist she go to school instead, Harley leaves home, betrays her family and joins the rival traveling circus Maison du Mystère. There, she is thrust into a world that is both brutal and beautiful, where she learns the value of hard work, passion and collaboration. But at the same time, Harley must come to terms with the truth of her family and her past—and reckon with the sacrifices she made and the people she hurt in order to follow her dreams.
This book came to my attention after seeing the cover on my twitter timeline, and I am so happy it did because Harley in the Sky sounds like a brilliant book. I find that the circus setting has captivating magic to it, and the dynamic between these two rivalling circuses sounds fascinating. Harley’s journey sounds like quite the experience, and I can’t wait to see how the consequences of her choices affect her relationship with her family.
What’s your most anticipated book?
