When Marlo Fauster claims she has switched souls with her brother, she gets sent straight to Fibble, the circle of Heck reserved for liars. But it's true - Milton and Marlo have switched places, and Marlo finds herself trapped in Milton's gross and gangly body. She also finds herself trapped in Fibble, a three-ring media circus run by none other than P. T. Barnum, an insane ringmaster with grandiose plans. Meanwhile Milton, as Marlo, is working at the devil's new television network. But there's something strange about these new shows. Why do they all air at the same time? And are they really broadcasting to the Surface? Soon Milton and Marlo realize that they need each other to sort through the lies and possibly prevent the end of the world - if Bea 'Elsa' Bubb doesn't catch them first.
