From award-winning actor Neil Patrick Harris comes the magical second book in the New York Times best-selling series with even more tricks up its sleeve.
Growing up in an orphanage, Leila was bullied for being different. She turned her hardship into skill by becoming an escape artist - a valuable trait when belonging to a group of magical best friends. But when a famous psychic comes to town, Leila and her pals won't be able to escape the big mystery heading their way. Whether chasing mad monkeys or banishing ghosts from haunted hotels, these six friends will do their best to keep Mineral Wells safe - but can they still protect themselves in the process?
Join the Magic Misfits as they discover adventure, friendship, and more than a few hidden secrets in this delightful new series. Whether you're a longtime expert at illusion or simply a new fan of stage magic, hold on to your top hat!
...have more questions? I thought you might. Here's some answers:
WHERE? A sleepy town in New England. Within the town is a magic shop run by the friendly but mysterious Dante Vernon - the gang's caped and top-hatted mentor.
WHO? Carter, who can make things vanish. Leila, who can escape from anything. Theo, who can make things levitate with the aid of his violin bow. Ridley, who can invent anything. And, of course, twins Olly and Izzy, who can make anyone laugh.
WHY? Because together, these six magical misfits will discover adventure, friendship, and the town's long-hidden secrets.

an exciting 2nd story full of more magic
The story keeps you hooked, the magic is everywhere and the you will love the characters even more after this book.
I only wished that Neil would have also read this whole story for I love his voice and the variation he created for every character. The female narraters voice is fairly high and sometimes a bit...screechy, which I don't care for, even if she did her best.
All in all I'm looking forward to the third part.
