Thanks to NetGalley for supplying me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This is just the kind of strange book I needed! At the start, I thought it was going to be some sci-fi story, which isn’t usually my cup of tea, but I loved this book. It’s the tale of Kitty Hayward from England, who ends up on a park bench in Coney Island with no money, friends or family. She is befriended by a con man, who introduces her to the world of the Unusuals, where she finds her new family amidst the carnival and freak show actors and players. She is taken on a zany, adventurous, magical ride with never a dull moment.
The storyline was good, but this is a book you read mostly for the characters as they are so richly presented.
This was great fun, and I cannot wait for the movie!
