I've read alot by Bohjalian, and this one is a bit different, but I really loved it. The protagonist is a teenage girl who loses her parents in a nuclear plant meltdown, then subsequently becomes homeless. Could be a crossover for older teen readers. Sad but memorable.  Wethersfield Library

Ninety-three year old Jacob Jankowski, now confined to a nursing home, looks back on the years he spent with the circus. He ended up there because he had nowhere else to go, and the circus he joined, the Benzini Brothers, was second rate at best. However, it gave him an opportunity to use his veterinary skills and make friends with a very special elephant, Rosie. This novel provides a fascinating look at circus life, as well as a painful look at Depression era America. Recommended for those who like historical novels.

I have been recommending this book to everyone. It is about the Armenian genocide in 1915, something I knoew little to nothing about. I believe everyone should know about this atrocity.
