There's a small city north of Boston that nobody would
give a second thought about if Jem Lockwood didn't open his big mouth on the first day back to school. His assignment was
to write a five page composition on what he did during the summer, and he said he could write a book.
Short Circus is Jem's own story about his remarkable adventures
with his Big Brother Jesse Standish and a host of neighbors and friends, plus a mysterious enemy who keeps sabotaging the
swimming pond. There are bike jumping contests, fistfights, motorbikes, visits to seaside towns for festivals, and swimming
in a waterfall. What begins as a glorious summer is very nearly ruined when Jem discovers that his Big Brother's rented house
is about to be sold, and Jesse Standish may be forced to move away.

Five reasons to read SHORT CIRCUS
Jem Lockwood. He's a cool kid, and if he lived in your neighborhood, he'd probably
get you in trouble, too. It has firecrackers and fistfights, and other stuff your mother wouldn't like. About a special friendship between Jem and his mentor from the Big Brother Association. At least one mystery evildoer. P. S. There's some romance too, but if you find that too mushy, read it
anyway! It might come in handy some day.
