The last thing a girl as awkward as Dani Gale should be doing is trying to learn the high wire. Yet that’s exactly where Dani ends up—at OZ, the Oswald Zinzendorf School of Circus Arts. Trying to overcome her shyness is near impossible when her new partner—the hottest guy she’s ever laid eyes on, and whose touch seems to give her poise she thought impossible—also seems to be sabotaging her progress.

The last thing Cai Coppersmith needs is a distraction, especially in the form of the new, cute shy girl. He needs to focus on trying not to shape-shift into a tiger on school grounds, and completing his mission to keep Dani from winning the school’s high-wire competition. In fact, the entire safety of OZ is relying on Dani not succeeding. But there’s something about the girl that draws him in. She has magic, he can feel it. So he’ll do what he can to protect her, even if it means pushing her away.


5 stars: "[T]his is a well-executed Wizard of Oz meets Harry Potter-type mashup." –Eva Scalzo, Definitely, Possibly, Maybe

4 stars: "It isn't just a retelling, it's a total reimagining. Loads of fun, and I can't wait for the next book!" –Allison Kuey, Amazon Reviewer

5 stars: "It is a paranormal storyline, shrouded in mystery, magic, and suspense[.]" –Pascale, Goodreads Reviewer

4 stars: "The author did a great job with blending two types of stories together. The normal young adult story of boy meets girl with a twist. This one was well paced with characters that I ended up loving." –Crossroad Reviews

5 stars: "Lions and Tigers and Boys is a great new YA fantasy that is made to read in one sitting (and you'll love it that way because it's a tough one to put down!)." –Olivia Farr, Goodreads Reviewer

4 stars: "Blending together paranormal abilities, swoony romance, and a potentially life-threatening, save-the-day mission, Lions and Tigers and Boys is an exciting addition to the YA paranormal world." –Lauren, Lauren’s Crammed Bookshelf

5 stars: "What an adorably clever book! [...] The circus school theme is fabulous and the characters and romance likable and sweet." –Lissa Hawley, Netgalley Reviewer

4 stars: "There is an art to subtly that not many authors have mastered, but Tawny Stokes totally hit it on the head in this story. I started reading, not realizing the extent that it played off of The Wizard of Oz, and I was thrilled with her way with words. This is NOT a re-telling of the classic novel, but it weaves in aspects of it in a completely captivating way.” –Heather Eager, author of Devil’s Playground

If you’re anything like me and the first thing that pops into your head when seeing the title of this book is the Wizard of Oz then you would be somewhat correct in the guess that this has something to do with that movie. The story isn’t a retelling but more of taking some of the characters/situatio ...more

WOW! What a great YA adventure this story proved to be, I thoroughly enjoyed it and can easily imagine it proving a real hit with able readers aged 10 and over. I’m presuming it is the start of a new series as the story ends on a cliffhanger that has left me eager to read more in the se ...more

eARC provided by Entangled Teen in exchange for an honest review!

I will admit, circus books are hit or miss for me. Out of the 3 (three) books I've read, I only liked one (which is also an Entangled Teen published book). Now I can add a second one to the list. And I will be on the hunt for more cir ...more

As soon as I saw where this book takes place - the Oswald Zinzendorf School of Circus Arts - I was intrigued. I don't think I've ever read a YA book taking place at a circus arts school before; however, I was sure it would provide an interesting and potentially drama inducing backdrop. As it turns o ...more

"Lions and Tigers and Boys" is a great new YA fantasy that is made to read in one sitting (and you'll love it that way because it's a tough one to put down!). I got the impression from the ending that it is the first in a new series, and I am so excited there will be more! This is also to say, as a ...more

Ok, first things first. Whoever said you can't judge a book by the cover was right. But people still do anyway. And the cover and title of this book doesn't match the tone of this book. The cover makes it seem like some steamy and primal teen romance (and the boy doesn't match at all what I imagined ...more

This is one of the more interesting books I have had the pleasure of reading recently. Most authors when redoing a classic stick with fairytales. This however is loosely based on the Wizard of Oz. Having read the whole story I got to the end and was dis ...more

This is written in a very mature voice, great imagery, good editing
It is a paranormal storyline, shrouded in mystery, magic, and suspense, shape-shifting, an enchanted campus...

What an adorably clever book!

I didn't realize from the blurb (though the title should have clued me in) that this wonderful (ha!) little story is Wizard of OZ inspired (? Themed? Influenced? Not sure.) Definitely not a retelling, but elements and nods to OZ abound while still being its own tale.

About the author

NY Times Best Selling Author

Tawny Stokes

Tawny Stokes has always been a writer. From an early age, she’d spin tales of serial killers in love, vampires taking over the world, and sometimes about fluffy bunnies turned bunnicidal maniacs. An honour student in high school, with a penchant for math and English, you’d never know it by the foot high blue Mohawk and Doc Martens, which often got her into trouble. No longer a Mohawk wearer, Tawny still enjoys old school punk rock, trance, zombie movies, teen horror films, and fluffy bunnies. She lives in Canada with her fantastical daughter, two cats, and spends most of her time creating new stories for teens.
