Kaleidoscope by Darryl Wimberley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
An addiction to Speakeasy's & Gambling lands Jack Romaine in hot water! In more trouble than he can get out of, Jack ends up being recruited by a Cincinnati gangster to retrieve said gangsters stolen money & railroad bonds. Jack is not the only one after the loot though! This wild adventure ends up leading him to Kaleidoscope, FL, a town for the freaks to live during off season of the carnival. In Kaleidoscope Jack is the odd man out. It being a town full of dwarfs, Siamese twins, sword-swallowers & many other types of odd people. Can he convince all of them that he is genuine while trying to hide his true meaning of being there?
I loved this book! It's full of twists & turns, ups & downs, humor, discovery & more! I was laughing one minute while in the next it would be tugging at my heartstrings. Kaleidoscope was an entertaining, rather quick read while at the same time will make you stop & think while taking a look around at the end. I would highly recommend this one to anyone who likes circus/carnival type reads or even to someone looking for something with a little adventure.
