Publisher's Summary

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.

(Psst. Hey, you! Yes, YOU! Congratulations on reading this far down. As a reward, I'll let you in on a little secret.... This book isn't just a book. It's a treasure trove of secrets and ciphers and codes and even tricks. Keep your eyes peeled and you'll discover more than just a story - you'll learn how to make your own magic!)

"Acceptance, love, and understanding are at the heart of this novel, which features a diverse cast of child characters... the message that friendship helps children conquer adversity is a welcome one." (Kirkus)

Thrilled the story continues!

My kids and I are loving the Magic Misfits series! We were waiting a while for The Second Story, but so glad for the addition of Christina Hendricks. The kids loved Neil Patrick Harris' narrating the first and being included in this one. Great for those car rides to Grandmom's (or Great-Grandmom's in this case). Thank you for a story the kids love listening to and I actually look forward to hearing, too!
