Scarlett has never left the tiny isle of Trisda, pining from afar for the wonder of Caraval, a once-a-year weeklong performance where the audience participates in the show.
Caraval is magic. Mystery. Adventure. And for Scarlett and her beloved sister, Tella, it represents freedom and an escape from their ruthless, abusive father. When the sisters' long-awaited invitations to Caraval finally arrive, it seems their dreams have come true. But no sooner have they arrived than Tella vanishes, kidnapped by the show's mastermind organiser, Legend.
Scarlett has been told that everything that happens during Caraval is only an elaborate performance. Nonetheless, she quickly becomes enmeshed in a dangerous game of love, magic and heartbreak. And whether it's real or not, she must find Tella before the game is over and her sister disappears forever.

Don’t Waste Your Time
I found this after reading the wonderful ‘Strange the Dreamer’ ... you know, through the ‘you may also like...’ type of links.
I wish I hadn’t. It’s a disgraceful, clumsy, childish, concoction of pretty words trying to disguise the lack of any cohesive plot. The characters are to a last one, uninteresting, shameful stereotypes. The vacuous interview with the author at the end is very telling; if it had been at the start, I could have saved some precious time. Worst Book Ever! Zero stars would be more accurate than one star.
