Billy Is Not A Freak Show

Freak Show, by James St. James, is a book I think everyone should read. I think this because it’s a book that deals a lot with differences in people. Being different is sometimes considered bad but Freak Show proves that being yourself, no matter how different, is a good thing. I also think that Freak Show can bring a lot of hope into some ones life who is used to being teased about who they are. Billy Bloom, the main character in Freak Show, has taught me a lot. He has taught me to be happy with who I am, and except who other people are. He has also taught me to respect people’s opinions. Billy has taught me that we are all freak shows.
