Synopsis: Step right up for a thrilling, chilling adventure full of mystery and magic!
Eleven-year-old juggling enthusiast Sullivan Mintz helps his family run the Stardust Home for Old People. It's not ideal—his best friend, Manny, is eighty-one years old. But then life turns upside-down the night Sullivan glimpses a strange horse-drawn caravan outside his window and decides to follow it. He is thrilled to find an old-fashioned medicine show, with performers who are his own age. But thrill quickly turns to dread when he steps onstage for the magic act only to wake up imprisoned inside the caravan!
As Sullivan meets with the other kids and his fears subside, his questions multiply. Is his family better off without him? Would life as a performing juggler be worse than living in an old folks' home? Will he plot his escape and return to his safe but boring existence? Or...could being kidnapped turn out to be the best thing that has ever happened to him?
