Micah’s grandfather, Ephraim, is dying, slowly. One day, Ephraim asked Micah to come in his room, which Micah had to sneak in there because of his Aunt Gertrude, who is very mean and, of course, was watching over Micah while his grandfather is sick. Micah was hoping that his grandfather will tell him another Circus Mirandus story, but instead Ephraim told Micah that the stories are true and that the powerful magician, the Lightbender, promised him a miracle. So Micah goes to look for the Circus. Will he find it?

    I hope it will win the Newbery Medal for 2015!

      All man. I didn’t win the Newbery. It didn’t even win a medal.
