*Starred Review* Aspiring magician Ethan, 11, learns the true meaning of magic in this charming and heartwarming debut. Ethan is desperate to enter a magic competition in Atlantic City, New Jersey, the winner of which will meet and perform with Magnus the Magnificent, Ethan's hero. Though Ethan makes money doing magic shows for children's parties, with his younger brother Freddy as his assistant, his earnings won't cover his expenses to Atlantic City from Maryland. Just when he thinks he's figured out a way to make the trip, his baby brother Jake gets seriously ill. Jake has a neurological disorder and can't talk or move on his own, but he's always smiling and is adored by his family and therapists. Ethan is fiercely loyal to his family, getting in trouble for shoving the new kid at school when he calls Jake the hurtful r-word. Ethan needs a miracle to save his brother and achieve his heart's desire. This honest and uplifting portrayal of children with disabilities feels real, and the ways in which the members of Ethan's family interact with one another feels right: they disagree but also love and appreciate one another, and their love for Jake brings out the best in all of them. The author based Jake on her own son, and that portrayal lends authenticity to this funny and moving story. Grades 4-7. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
