[The Carnival in My Mind] is a disappointment for this Wersba fan. Despite interesting characterization, it reads like a formula novel; teenage boy who has problems finds an older female friend who also has problems. They help each other overcome these and live happily ever after. I do not recommend this one.

Gerry McBroom, in a review of "The Carnival in My Mind," in The ALAN Review, Vol. 10, No. 3, Spring, 1983, p. 21.
