Summary
YA In a lowly sideshow fair in eighteenthcentury England, teenager Mim is struggling to find her worth as an act. Not white, but not black enough to be truly exotic, her pet parrot who speaks four languages is a bigger draw than her. But Alex, the onearmed boxer boy, sees her differently. And she, too, feels newly interested in him. Then Dr Fox arrives with his scientific kit for producing 'electrickery' feats of electrical magic these bawdy audiences have never seen before. To complete his act, Fox chooses Mim to play the 'Electrical Venus'. Her popularity and the electricshocking kisses she can provide for a penny mean takings are up, slop is off the menu and this spark between her and Fox must surely be love. But is this starring role her true worth or is love worth more than a penny for an electrifying kiss?
