'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 kids. 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.'

This book was magical.

I have been really looking forward to reading this book, and I am so glad to say that it didn't disappoint.

I honestly don't have a bad word to say about this book. I fell in love with the characters in this book withing moments of them being introduced to the story. I loved that each of them had there own personalities and talents to bring to the story.

As for the actually story in this book; it was fabulous. I loved the way it built and how it incorporated each of the characters. I was fully engrossed by all of the twists and turns and I was completely entertained right up until the very last page.

There was an added aspect of this book that I didn't expert and that was magic pages. Scattered throughout this book was pages of instructions of how to perform magic tricks. I thought this was a fantastic addition to this book given that the story revolves around magic.

Another cool thing about this book was getting to decipher codes. There were a few different codes in this book with spaces to work out the answers. This was a really fun addition to an already wonderful book.

I honestly loved this book. Given how much I loved it, I can only image the joy and entertainment it will bring middle grade readers.

The Magic Misfits by Neil Patrick Harris is a must have for all young readers and their families.
