By Neil Patrick Harris
This book is about a boy named Carter meeting friends. He has done magic since he was little. He runs away from a mean, bad uncle and ends up in a small town. The circus is in town, but not a good circus. Carter meets a strange man and eventually a group of kids who also like magic. Together they save the day and Carter gets a new family.
This book was AWESOME! I didn’t want to stop reading it. They teach you magic tricks and have hidden codes in the book. I liked the characters. This looks like the start of the series and I can’t wait for future books.
I recommend this book to people interested in magic. Want to know how a magician knows what crayon is yours? Read the book and find out.
