The Boneshaker by Kate Milford

Natalie Minks know that strange things happen at crossroads, but the crossroads at Arcane, Missouri seem awful boring, until Dr. Jake Limberleg and his medicine show come to Arcane and turn everything upside down. When her mother becomes ill, whispers engulf the town in uncertainty and Limberleg prescribes odd medicines, Natalie knows something is up. She uncovers "bone shaking" secrets and finds that the town's future rests in her hands.

This book is not one I particularly liked, it tended to jump from one subject to another. I found myself rereading a lot to figure out what was going on. The characters were not very well-described except for the main character Natalie. The book had a very slow start. I wouldn't recommend this book.
