Harry Houdini. Penn and Teller. David Copperfield. Marcus Millian the Third. Okay, so Marcus isn´t a famous magician. He may not even be a great magician. But his great-grandfather, the once-legendary and long-retired Zachary the Stupendous, insists Marcus has true talent. And when Grandpa Zachary boasts that he and Marcus are working on an illusion that will shock, stun, and astonish, Marcus wishes he could make himself disappear. The problem? Marcus also has stage fright - in spades. It´s one thing to perform elaborate card tricks in front of his best friend, Kimberly, but it´s an entirely different feat to perform in front of an audience. Then Grandpa Zachary dies in his sleep. To uphold his great-grandfather´s honor, the show must go on. It would take a true sorcerer to pull off the trick Marcus has planned. But maybe he´s the next best thing. 1. Language: English.
