As a child, I wore a dead girl's boots. Growing up in a bell tower, isolated and deaf, Wisp spent her days ringing a bell she could t hear. When cruel carnival master Zorman whisks her away at the age of fourteen, she becomes a ten-cent sideshow freak-THE UNDEAD GIRL. Have your dimes ready, folks, and step right up to see a living corpse! On display in a dusty caravan, Wisp befriends other sideshow acts: Dog Girl ( From the wilds, a girl part beast, part human! ), Monster Sam ( Witness a real monster! ), and Skeleton Lady ( The most horrific sight of this world ). Yet it is the forbidden love with the huckster and former slave SaeSae, a creator of potions, that makes Wisp feel alive. But can the huckster truly create a potion to give Wisp what she most wants-love-or is that ather of his cons?
