Carter is an orphan who lived with a bad uncle that used him to steal from people.
He run away and take a train ride to another beautiful small town where he met a magician and his family.
Now he got new friends who like magic and would help him to gain some trust back.
The book is written for teenagers who like adventure and secret code. There are quite a lot of those. Also, there are in-between chapters that give beginner level magic tricks.
Lovely. It is a fun read and a fun books with secret messages.
Looking for them now.... And the story is about teenagers against bad guys who want to steal from people.
The diversity in characters and background has sent a message that just written words. There are two gay dads with an adopted daughter, a best friend in wheelchair. Like real life, people are diverse, but they could be friends and do things together. And the difference doesn't really matter. It is no big deal. And that's the treatment in this book.
Highly recommended it. Especially for children and teens.
