Status: Second Draft in Progress
Twelve-year-old Clio is a master pick-pocket, and cheating danger is her favorite pastime - until one fateful night when her best friend disappears and leaves her at the mercy of the darker side of London.
Desperate for protection, Clio joins a traveling circus and soon finds herself uprooted to communist Germany, where she learns that her newfound home is more than harmless entertainment, a boy mechanic-turned-clown has something to hide, and even the shadows of her past can only be outrun for so long before one returns to threaten them all.
