For seventeen-year-old Corey Ryder, life on the road is all she’s ever known. A trainee trapeze artist in her aunt’s circus, she’s never found herself in one place for more than a few weeks at a time. For her, it’s a way of life.

But when a tragic accident leaves their entire livelihood in tatters, Corey is forced to leave the circus behind and revisit a part of her life she’s been trying to forget: her mom. All of a sudden, what once was just another stop on an endless road trip becomes the very center of Corey’s life.

Unnerved by the stark differences between circus life and that of her new home, Corey’s convinced she’ll never settle in. She can’t wait for the moment she’ll be able to break free from the bubble of Sherwood, California and return to life on the road. But when an unlikely friendship sparks between her and Luke Everett, the school’s Golden Boy, Corey comes to realize it may be the most unexpected bonds that keep you tethered.

Your writing is beautiful! My English isn't the best since it isn't my first language, so I sometimes can have trouble with a few words. But that doesn't change the acknowledgement that you truly are an amazing and inspiring writer!🌸

I get that they don't have much time, but isn't it kinda bad for your body to not warm up first? Like, I'm not a trapeze artist by any means, but I am a dancer, and going on stage without warming up just makes everything harder, and walking off more painful.
I feel like she’s going to fall or something during the actual performance
