Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:
A compelling, magical time traveling tale, set in Depression-era Australia

This is impossible. I must be dreaming. Why does the newspaper have a date that is more than eighty years ago?

Claire finds a sequin star among her grandmother’s treasures. Why does she own such a cheap piece of jewelry? The mystery deepens when the brooch hurtles Claire back in time to 1932. Claire finds herself stranded in a circus camp. The Great Depression has made life difficult, but Claire befriends performers Rosina and Jem, and a boy called Kit who watches the show every night. When Kit is kidnapped, it’s up to Claire, Rosina, and Jem to save him. But Claire wonders who Kit and Rosina really are. One is escaping poverty and the other is escaping wealth—can the two find happiness together?
