Carnival: Volume Two
In a world of lights, music, fanfare, and fun, there’s not a lot left to the mundane, and nothing can be truer for four special boys whose lives intertwine in a most unusual, unexpected way. They all have secrets and supernatural powers that set them apart from the average small town high schooler.
Jesse and Donny want to be together and be out, but Donny is scared Jesse’s dad and their unconventional carnival family will kick him to the curb. Jesse is worried about his dying father, and he really doesn’t want to worry about hiding his love for Donny too. Chad can help with the former, but not without a cost. Anything he does comes back to him in a major way. He has to convince himself everything will be okay and he’s doing the right thing. Dax just wants to go home so the bullying will end, but he also wants somewhere to fit in. It will take a lot of effort, but he might find his place with the carnival.
Book two and must be read in order.
This one picks up pretty much when book one ends. We’ve left Decatur, Tate and Rand behind. Which brings Donny, Jessie, and Chad as three of the main four boys. We met Chad in the last book, but he was a minor character. And now we bring in Dax.
Jessie and Donny has cemented there love for each other, but because of the carnie life and Jessie father’s health have decided to keep it quiet. With only a few ppl knowing
As we get the know Chad more, we find he a likable guy but has an issue that needs resolving. Dax on the other hand was written so bad he was bad, childish, immature and just plain unlikable. Which I have to give kudos’s to the author for pulling off those writing skills.
As we pulling another town we find some of the same comforts, setting up, tearing down life in general. As well as everyone settling in to a potential life without Jessie’s dad.
The end of this, however, did set us up for a third book, lots left unresolved.
