Current Status: First Draft Complete
Once upon a time in the city of London, there lived a little girl with a strange name, and uncertain past, and an extrodinary future.
Twelve-year-old Clio is a master pick-pocket, and cheating danger is what she enjoys most, until on fateful night, when her best friend deserts her and leaves Clio at the mercy of the dark city streets.
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 quiet 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 haunt them all.
