    "This is a tearjerker for sure so make sure you bring lots of Kleenex to read this one. It shows an interesting twist to what it's like to be on the other side of the sick sister. Not only is the girl left in the dark because her sister is sick all the time but she has to be the one to provide what her sister needs the most so her identity is lost. It's a sad but enlightening story. I have two copies!"

    "Entertaining and colorful, this is a pleasant film to watch. The cast does a nice job; Reese Witherspoon displays great athletic prowess and she is a delight to watch. The story's underlying tone of impending disaster provides a negative aura to this tale: it is worth watching to see how it plays out. From a historic perspective, this film portrays the difficult life experienced by those in the circus world at that time."
