Girl On A Wire


Jules Maroni is a sixteen-year-old wire walker whose dream is to follow in her father’s footsteps. When Jules’ family gets offered a spot at the world’s most famous circus, Jules can’t wait to join them. However, the Garcias, a decade old rival of the Maroni family, are also performing there.

Joining the circus may resurrect old superstitions about the Maroni family and the feud that they had with the Garcias. However, this circus is the opportunity of a lifetime for Jules and she can’t imagine anywhere else that she’d rather be.

Jules’ grandmother is also known world-wide for having magical powers. Jules doesn’t believe in the world of sorcerers and fortune-telling. However, Jules is threatened by unlucky magical objects that her grandmother believes are not of this world. The magical objects continues to haunt Jules and her family members and a death may occur- one that no one may be able to stop.

Will an age-old feud about magic ruin the lives of those who are innocent?
