Marcie's attraction to Ivan sparked the very moment they met. But they lived in totally different worlds. She was a local high school student leading an everyday life and working after school for the local veterinarian. He was a dashing trapeze artist traveling with his circus family, and he would soon be back on tour.
Was it only a fleeting romance? A romance that would vanish the moment Ivan left town? Had he fallen for her, or would he always remain an elusive dream?
July 2015 update: Here is the new cover and title! Same great story...Just for the record, I've changed the title in this review to match the current status of this book.
Love on a High Wire by Sydell Voeller
Face it, at some point we all love a sweet romance. Remember being a teen and noticing boys? One boy would stick out and you get all gushy inside, imagining being boyfriend and girlfriend? I don’t know about you, but just imagining some boy acknowledging me was pretty heady stuff. Why not let that innocent time come alive again for your teen? Sydell Voeller’s Love on a High Wire
is a trip through young innocence and first love that will warm your heart while being “clean” enough to share the mystery of romance with a young teen.
Marcie is a young woman to be proud of; she is smart, responsible, talented and caring. While helping the local Vet with a sick circus animal, she meets Ivan, a young circus performer who is part of his family’s act. Quiet, reserved and from a background as different as night and day from Marcie’s, there is something about Ivan that is special, something that draws her to him. A crush? Infatuation with someone who will be a memory when the circus moves on? Or could these two teens have that special connection that could last a lifetime? Who knows, for Marcie, this is a fantasy boy come to life. For Ivan, it’s a chance to feel like a normal teen, if only for a while.
Because Sydell Voeller wrote it, you can be assured that there will be no surprises or overly mature scenes for a young teen, as she paints a wonderful picture of young love still filled with the innocence of youth. Marcie is a great role model and Ivan’s only claim t being the proverbial “badboy” is his family’s transient lifestyle, which far from being bad, makes him like a fantasy or a daydream.
I’m seriously thinking this would make a perfect gift of reading for young teens on up! Even MY mom would approve of this one!
I received a copy from Sydell Voeller in exchange for my honest review.
