fear was losing her mother, and after she suffered a series of debilitating strokes, this would imminently become a reality Despite her precarious health, Fontaines mom decided to defer a dream no and tour Italy with her husbanda courageous, if not medically ill advised, adventure It was also just the cue her daughter needed to cross off a bucket list item of her own join the circus Like any other job, a certain skill set is required, one that Fontaine not so convincingly espoused But she was a quick study, and over the course of a season with the World of Wonders, the last touring sideshow in

embraces, and finally allows herself to be transformed by the carnival s World of Wonders and the unforgettable cast of characters who calls the sideshow home Pam Houston, author of Contents May Have
