Overview

A New York Times bestseller and USA Today bestselling book! From award-winning actor Neil Patrick Harris comes the magical first book in a new series with plenty of tricks up its sleeve.

When street magician Carter runs away, he never expects to find friends and magic in a sleepy New England town. But like any good trick, things change instantly as greedy B.B. Bosso and his crew of crooked carnies arrive to steal anything and everything they can get their sticky fingers on.

After a fateful encounter with the local purveyor of illusion, Dante Vernon, Carter teams up with five other like-minded illusionists. Together, using both teamwork and magic, they'll set out to save the town of Mineral Wells from Bosso's villainous clutches. These six Magic Misfits will soon discover adventure, friendship, and their own self-worth in this delightful new series.

The one word to describe this, fun! Neil Patrick Harris took his personality and threw it together with a great plot and it became this great book. This is a fantastical tale that will have you laughing every page. Such a great introduction to middle grade but enjoyable for people of every age. I would recommend to 8 years+. I definitely can't wait to read the next book in the series as soon as I get it signed at BookCon 2019!

I first started listening to this on audio and the audio wasn't working for me, as there is a lot going on in this book. There are pages between the chapters that have illustrations and instructions on how to do some simple tricks that need to be read. With that being said, I really enjoyed reading this book, it was fun, adventurous, light-hearted, and I love the misfits. I did think the whole carnival thing was a little bit creepy though. I also really loved the plot-twist. I love reading middle-grade every now and then as it's refreshing. I'll definitely be reading the second book when it is published.
