Girl on a Wire by Gwenda Bond

51P4SHEUfdL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_Julieta (Jules) has been wire walking for a very long time. She inherited the talent for the difficult act from her father, and has grown to love it. After her and her family are invited to join the elite “Cirque America”, the tension is tighter than the wire Jules walks upon. An old family feud has arisen again. Julieta’s grandmother, long ago, was accused of hexing the show, causing deaths and great fear amongst her fellow performers. Jules refuses to believe magic is truly real, but when tragedy strikes, and she loses a loved one, she has no choice but to accept the truth. She unwillingly falls in love with a trapeze artist of the opposing family, and suddenly everyone has a secret. Together, Jules and the boy are determined to figure out who is trying to hurt the circus… all while hiding their forbidden love.

*I recommend this book for ages 12 & up, because it does contain some romantic content that may not be considered appropriate for younger birdies.
