Tour - Spartacus and The Circus of Shadows (Review)
When Spartacus Ryan “Poop Lip” Zander finds his house destroyed and his wacko, Human Cannonball mother missing, it’s obvious that she’s been kidnapped by Bartholomew’s World-Renowned Circus of the Incredible. But when his dad and brother refuse to believe it—because they’re morons, obviously—it’s up to Spartacus to be the hero.
With the Internet-wizardry of his best friend and clues from his mom’s postcards, Spartacus sets out on a zany, west coast rescue mission. But as the stories about the circus get stranger (and Spart’s enemies get weirder), he realizes the only way to bring his family back together is to bring the big top down, once and for all.
An entertaining read, with lots of twists and turns as you follow Ryan a 13 year old boy through the adventures. Learning who to trust and who not to trust for sure. You get a hilarious outtake on this adventure of discovery and watching his reactions as things are not how they at first seem.
