One day the carnival comes to town and Nancy and her friends go to check it out. While there she meets a young bareback rider named Lolita who claims that she owns the missing charm to Nancy's bracelet.
Lolita goes on to say that her parents died, and she was adopted by the ringmaster, who is cruel man who abuses Lolita, his staff and his animals.
Nancy is determined to track down the real owners of the horse bracelet. Along the way she encounters kidnappers, as well as narrowly escaping death. Also, she gets news that Lolita's mother may be alive and well in another country.
This is another classic Nancy Drew story. If you can find the original 1953 version, buy it, if not Applewood books has a great copy. Don't buy the re-written version it's not very good.
I enjoyed this book very much because it was so different from all the other books I have read. I also read this book because it was a real eye catching mystery.
My favoriate character was Nancy Drew because she was the main detective. She had solved many mysteries and was kind and extremly modest.
The best part of the book was when Nancy joined the circus. The reason why it was my the best part was because she had only been stunt riding for a little time and she was doing a wonderful job in the circus.
The ending was ironic because you would never thought that the two characters would ever meet again.
