Randy Carmichael is 14 years old when the mysterious Olympus Circus comes through Buchanan, Kansas. He lives with his alcoholic mother and generally is shy and bookish. Randy notices the effect the circus has on his mother, she becomes more withdrawn and less accepting of him going to see the circus in his free time. She distrusts the performers and his growing interest in Circus Olympus. Randy believes that his mother's strange, distant attitude towards him is directly related to the coming of the circus and resolves to solve the mystery.

To do that, he runs away with the circus, which is now on the run from the law, itself. He finds that the circus performers are searching for a purpose in life; just as he is. He begins to wonder whether the circus is linked to the god-like being who appears in his dreams to be searching for a mysterious wand. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and give it an A!
