Loving This Series for Girls

The summer after Andi Carter turns nine the circus comes to town. She can't wait to get into line to see the elephants, acrobats, and - most of all-the champion bareback rider. What could be more thrilling than riding your very own horse under the big top?
When the Carters see the show, Andi meets Henry Jackson, a small boy selling concessions. Andi thinks he must have the perfect job-hanging out with happy clowns, exotic animals, and excited visitors. But it's not all fun and games. Henry shares his secret with Andi: he had run away to join the circus, but now he is trapped! Will Andi help Henry get free, even if it may mean losing something very special to her?

Meet the Author:
Susan Marlow started writing stories when she was just ten.   She never intended to be published, she simply wrote and shared with her family who encouraged her to send them in to a publisher. She has a degree in elementary education and loves to teach. She taught in Christian schools until she began homeschooling and now helps other homeschooling families, including her grandchildren. She teaches writing workshops, speaks at Christian schools about the writing process, is a free lance editor, enjoys her grandchildren and writes stories.

My Take:
This book is a new adventure in the Circle C Series. A circus is coming to town and Andi is so excited. She begins dreaming of being in a circle and riding her horse as a bareback trip rider. She is fascinated by the seemingly endlessly exciting life of the circus people. Even her brother wanted to run away and join the circus when he was young. Yet, after meeting Henry Jackson, Andi is not so sure any more. Can she and her family help Henry?

Once again Susan has written a book with great characters, life lessons, and family values. Susan gives a new-word list for young readers. These books are pretty easy to read. My daughter and I both think they are great! She has really enjoyed them. There is a little bit of background about the circus included and a few illustrations that help bring the book to life.

I definitely recommend this series for young girls (possibly even boys) ages 7-10. I was blessed with a free copy of this book by Kregel to read. I was not required to review positively, and all opinions are my own.
