Roustabout is a gritty, realistic, disturbing portrait of the circus every child, at some point dreamed of joining. Mat dreams of escaping. Abandoned by her mother, molested by her stepfather, she sees through the glitter and fantasy of the bigtop to the grimy reality of the backlot.

A haunting novel that captures the dime store glitter and hard-edged despair of circus life.
