Publisher's Summary

Soon to be a major motion picture with Bette Midler, Laverne Cox, and Abigail Breslin!
Meet Billy Bloom, new student at the ultra-white, ultra-rich, ultra-conservative Dwight D. Eisenhower Academy and drag queen extraordinaire. Actually, "drag queen" does not begin to describe Billy and his fabulousness. Any way you slice it, Billy is not a typical 17-year-old, and the Bible Belles, Aberzombies, and Football Heroes at the academy have never seen anyone quite like him before. But thanks to the help and support of one good friend, Billy's able to take a stand for outcasts and underdogs everywhere in his own outrageous, over-the-top, sad, funny, brilliant, and unique way.


What the Critics Say

" Freak Show has it all. It's hilarious, sad, sexy, and glamorous - just the way life should be." (Perez Hilton)
"Gutsy, funny, over-the-top Billy Bloom is a profile in courage." ( The Washington Post)

Thank you for letting Billy Bloom

I'll start by saying that Billy Bloom already had a special place in my heart, I read the book years ago because James St James also has a spot right in there next to BB. I was delighted when I saw Freak Show on Audible but also a little terrified. My dear Freak Show, sweet Billy how would they treat the swamp princess super freak? I needn't have worried. I absolutely loved this audible book, adored it, Ben read it beautifully he was Billy. At times I thought I was listening to a young James St James reading and just made the experience even more delightful. A true story of battling and overcoming hate and finding love! If you've seen the film then I encourage you to listen to hear the complete thoughts & wonderfulness of Billy. James is a genius, more please. Can I get some lipgloss x
