*My favorite part in this book was when Houdini, jumped of the bridge in handcuffs because he did it into freezing water. I liked the part of the book when Harry escaped from the mirror cuffs

Why does the book sample only have a table of contents? What if this was an inapropreate book and wanted to figure that out by looking at the sample? NO!!!!!!!!!!!! But I like the author. She visited my school.
