Who knew Neil Patrick Harris was a magician?

Take an orphaned pickpocket, a young escape artist, a tuxedo-clad violinist who can levitate objects, and a tech-savvy redhead with a temper as fiery as her hair, and you have the Magic Misfits.  In this series opener, the four kids use their special skills to thwart a jewel heist and save the inhabitants of their small town from the nefarious plans of a greedy circus owner.  Despite some sinister goings-on, this is a fun and breezy read with an appealing cast of ethnically diverse and differently-abled characters.
And, yeah, Neil Patrick Harris really is a magician.  Google it.
