(2) After her only friend kills herself, fourteen-year-old Portia runs away from the McGreavey Home for Wayward Girls and uses her storytelling ability to get a job with Mosco's Traveling Wonder Show. Through detailed description, the dreariness of the Home and the fantastical nature of the carnival world come vividly to life in this atmospheric Depression-era tale of self-discovery. Review 7/12.
