Circa Now

What if you could Photoshop the fantastical into existence?


“Just a tinge of fantasy pervades this captivating tale of grief and acceptance and of the power of imagination.”

– Kirkus Reviews

“Turner offers a moving exploration of grief and an honest depiction of friends and family facing the hardest of times. Examples of Circa’s father’saltered images appear throughout the novel, with narrative captions that give the story a slight Miss Peregrine–meets–Harris Burdick atmosphere and add to its sense of mystery and possibility.

– Publishers Weekly

“Turner’s story is an intricate weave of grief and healing, friendship, trauma, and wishful desire; gentle quirkiness and light humor soften the dire issues…it has an intelligent, compassionate originality that gleams throughout.”

– The Horn Book
