Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
Juila Pastrana was real, and her search for love and the world's judgment on appearance are universal. These facts hold my attention throughout Orphans of the Carnival by Carol Birch. I want to know what happens to Julia, and I hope things work out for her. Without a spoiler, I will say that this ficiton story is so unbelievable that it could only be based on the truth. Julia Pastrana's story is one I will remember for along time.
