“Water For Elephants” by Sara Gruen
Growing up, there were always the stories of people running off to join the circus. Now with Cirque de Soleil and other similar circus acts, it doesn’t have the same mystique about it. But in Water for Elephants author Sara Gruen really gives you an idea of what it was like back in 1913. It follows the sotry of Jacob Jankowski who joins the circus after his parents are killed in a car accident. Really well told story.
