The Carnival of Lost Souls

The Carnival of the Lost Souls by Laura Quimby is an exciting adventure in which a young orphan, Jack, must follow his hero Houdini and escape from Mussini, the greatest magician ever. Jack thinks he has finally found a home with his new guardian the professor, until the professor sells him off to Mussini who takes Jack to the Forest of the Dead, where Jack is forced to take part in Mussini’s traveling magic show. There, a terrible fate awaits him, unless he can escape in time. Throughout the story Jack strives to be like his hero Houdini, which I think is the author’s main point: follow your dreams. The Carnival of the Lost Souls is a page-turning adventure with an unexpected twist at the end, in which you will be wondering “can Jack escape the inescapable?”
