Harley in the Sky

Harley in the Sky

Author(s): Akemi Dawn Bowman

Location(s): Las Vegas

Genre(s): Young Adult

Era(s): N/A

When I’m on the trapeze, I feel whole.

When I’m in the air with the ropes between my fingers, I feel like I’m everything I ever want to be in the world. This is what I want. It s all I’ve ever wanted.

I only wish my parents could see what this means to me.

What it would mean to hold a dream in my palm, press it tight against my heart, and never let it go.

Harley in the Sky is a luminous, unforgettable examination of love, loyalty and tough choices. From award-winning Akemi Dawn Bowman comes a breathtaking evocation of the magic and drama of the circus.
