Amari Peters has never stopped believing that her missing brother, Quinton, is alive. Not even when the police told her otherwise or when she got in trouble for standing up to bullies at school who said he was gone for good. So when she finds a briefcase in his closet that contains a nomination for a summer tryout at the Bureau of Supernatural Affairs, a secretive organization that Quinton had joined with hopes of becoming a valued agent, Amari is certain that the Bureau holds the key to locating her brother. Accepted into the summer program, she must compete for a permanent spot against kids who’ve known about magicians, fairies, aliens and other supernatural creatures their entire lives. No matter how hard she tries, Amari can’t seem to escape their doubt and intense scrutiny, especially once her supernatural talent is discovered. She is a natural-born magician, which the Bureau considers rare and dangerous. Given this status, she must dispel the prejudices against magicians while passing a series of extremely competitive trials in order to join the exclusive Department of Supernatural Investigations, the group that Quinton was working with to track down the Night Brothers, a mysterious band of magical criminals. With an evil magician threatening the supernatural world and her own classmates thinking she is an enemy, Amari has never felt so alone. But if she doesn’t stick it out and win the tryouts, she may never find out what happened to her brother. Chock full of imagination, heart and spell-binding magic, this is middle grade fantasy at its best.
