Product description

Love. It moves mountains. It stops the world. And trapeze girl Lo is falling… The circus always moves on. Every time, Rita and Lo pack their bags and take flight. These sisters and best friends spend their lives on the wing – soaring through the air on their trapeze, never staying in one place for long. Until Lo meets a boy. Suddenly, she wants nothing more than to stay still. That’s what love does; you can’t bear to be anywhere but where they are. But that means leaving the circus behind: her world of greasepaint, glitter and magic. And the others don’t like her decision. How far will Lo go to keep her feet on the ground?

  • By the highly acclaimed author of Seed and Paper Butterflies
  • A beautiful, heartbreaking tale of circus life and forbidden love
  • Perfect for fans of Sarah Crossan and All the Bright Places
  • Paper Butterflies was shortlisted for the Bookseller YA Prize

This book contains mature content and language more suitable for older readers.
