Squirrel is a hard-hitting, foul-mouthed orphan raised in a traveling circus, and her one goal in life is to discover her real name.
If she knew that, maybe she’d be able to pierce the mystery of her past: Where did she come from, and who abandoned her on the side of the road twelve years ago?
Now is her opportunity. The king is hosting a competition for entertainers across the land, and the champion will receive a potent reward: A single question from The Oracle. The right question could make a man rich beyond measure, but Squirrel has other plans.
With a magically irrefutable answer at stake, Squirrel is determined to put on the greatest show her kingdom has ever seen and win the grand prize: Her identity.
But treacherous secrets lurk beneath the dazzling façade of royalty, and a single name uttered aloud might spell upheaval and death for Squirrel, her troupe, and the kingdom of Illiestar.
