*I received a copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review*
First of all, thank you so much to First Second publishing for sending me a copy! This was definitely different from what I normally read but in a good way! This was one of the books that made me glad I stepped out of my comfort zone to read!
I really liked the carnival setting! Even though it was based on actual sad carnival events that took place in the 1800s, I thought the author did a good job of combining a happy story mixed with dark and sad. And it was surprisingly dark. The ghost of Jane creeped me out. Not going to lie. However, the author made me care about what was happening to Iss in such a short time! I was really invested in her story and in her realizing what it means to be on her own, and realizing who is good and who is not good in her life.
Overall, I liked the dark, atmospheric writing!
