Circus Galacticus

Circus Galacticus
by Deva Fagan

Trix can deal with being an orphan charity case at a snotty boarding school. She can hold her own when everyone else tells her not to dream big dreams. She can even fight back against the mysterious stranger in a silver mask who tries to steal the meteorite her parents trusted her to protect.
But her life is about to change forever. The Circus Galacticus has come to town, bringing acts to amaze, delight, and terrify. And now the dazzling but enigmatic young Ringmaster has offered Trix the chance to be a part of it.

Soon Trix discovers an entire universe full of deadly enemies and potential friends, not to mention space leeches, ancient alien artifacts, and exploding chocolate desserts. And she just might unravel the secrets of her own past if she can survive long enough. (description from
I loved this book. It is the perfect blend of the fantastic elements of a circus and the sci-fi adventure of space travel!
Trix was a character desperate to fit in.  To find where she truly belonged.  To find lifelong friends....and she finds it all in the Circus Galacticus. 
Never mind that she has to help them win an inter-galactic war...with cool powers!
Never mind that she has cotton candy pink hair!
Never mind that there is an awesome and mysterious Ringmaster... and a big top that turns into the coolest space ship...EVAH!
