Description

A true magician never reveals their secrets or takes "you can't" as an answer.

Fourteen-year-old Kylie really wants to be a part of the magician’s showcase. The problem is, the director has already decided that, because she’s a girl, Kylie would be better off assisting a magician rather than doing her own routine. Determined to prove him wrong, Kylie decides to team up with her friend Min to secure a spot in the show. But while working on their act, Kylie loses sight of what it means to be a good friend. Tired of being mistreated, Min leaves and teams up with another magician. Will Kylie and Min make up in time to bring their act to the stage?

Editorial Reviews

“Chan deftly turns the everyday tensions of friendship issues and the magic show into a fast-moving plot without veering into melodrama...A strong choice for reluctant readers who are looking for an accessible, realistic read about friendship and working through differences.”

— School Library Journal

“Chan writes about more than just a couple of 14-year-olds who want to be magicians. He also writes about family, and friendship…A must-read.”

— CM: Canadian Review of Materials
