Each evening, nestled in Berlin's Treptower Park, the immigrant circus comes to life.
"A provocative, heartfelt journey from the first page to the striking conclusion." ~ Alyssa Elmore, from Readers' Favorite Book Reviews
When Yusuf fled Syria, he lost everything. Now the circus, with its middle-eastern flair, is the only home he knows. When the lights go on, the refugees dazzle their audience, but off-stage tensions flare.
Ellie is passionate about the circus and drawn to its broken people. Even so, if she wants to keep her job at the newspaper, she must head up a campaign against it.
One night, in the midst of a show, two young circus boys come to blows. With the circus at risk of closure, Ellie must convince her readers that we can have compassion for those we fear, or Yusuf will be forced to uproot again.

"Hidden Colours is a must-read for those who enjoy interpersonal drama and are also concerned with the cold, discriminatory hatred that's seeping into our world." ~ K.C. Finn, Readers' Favorite Book Reviews
"In many ways, there is no better time for the appearance of 'Hidden Colours,' with its themes of intolerance, repression, prejudice, and communities clashing with each other as they assimilate immigrant newcomers. The stage is ripe for this story of different perspectives, desires for safety and community, and the issues posed by immigrants who are viewed as threats, and Nillu Nasser does an exquisite job of reflecting this environment and the social and political forces at work among all groups. ... The result is an engrossing portrait of clashes between cultures, shared bonds and points of contention...." ~ D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
