The New Comedic Action/Adventure Novel
by Dan Frischman
Best friends Darren Jackson and Jamie Jenks are struggling to become a famous 15-year-old magic duo. The only problem: their tricks always fail, and they sadly lay claim to being the worst magicians ever.
But that’s about to change. A trip to a thrift shop leads them to a mysterious force which turns Jamie into a real magician. Now able to do anything at all, world fame and fortune quickly follow — as well as a world of trouble when they turn the President of the United States into a four-pound rodent.
On the run, the boys must evade the police and the FBI, not to mention a tyrannical fellow magician, before their luck runs out — forever.
