Loved it! This book deals with real life situations that teen's face like: self esteem, bullying, and first loves. For myself: I liked being transported to the world of festivals, Gypsies, and behind the scenes of a circus. I related to Valthea's desire for both career and love, and her story made me want to listen and follow my own intuition.
Well written, great story. Hoping for a sequel!
