Ten-year-old Babo and the other ?leftover kids? live on an abandoned circus camp in a war-torn country. Babo believes her circus-star parents will come back for her any day now, so she is not one bit happy when an American couple adopts her. She hates her new name (Betti) and is confused by everything in America. She?s determined to run away. But as Betti slowly begins to trust her new family and even makes a friend, she decides maybe she can stay just one more day. And then maybe another . . .
Betti on the High Wire is both heartbreaking and hilarious?and completely unforgettable. This brave little storyteller of a girl will wiggle her way straight into your heart.
