About the book:
A hundred-year-old circus side show may be the key to a seventeen-year-old's mysterious past in Colleen Nelson's The Life and Deaths of Frankie D. Found in an alley when she was a child, Frankie has no memory of who she is. Recurring dreams about a hundred-year-old carnival side show, a performer known as Alligator Girl, and a man named Monsieur Duval have an eerie familiarity to them. Are the dreams her way of working through her trauma or is there a more sinister plan at work?
