Twelve-year-old Rebel has a nose for trouble. During in-school detention, Rebel stumbles upon a wormhole and travels back in time to the 1930s Dust Bowl in Oklahoma. She meets Dixie O’Dell, an orphaned girl, who picks pockets to earn enough money to survive. While on the run from the law, Rebel and Dixie are taken in by a traveling carnival freak show. The company freaks – The Illustrated Woman, the dwarf, The World’s Fattest Woman, Spidergirl and The Half-Man, Half-Woman – teach Rebel the true meaning of family.
