Eighth grader, Jay, has been his dad's magician's assistant for the last five years. He mastered spoon-bending by the age of eight, silk and disappearing tricks by ten, and has become a talented cardician. But no matter how fun it used to be when he was younger, being in the family show business is growing OLD!

Jay wants to try out for the basketball team and spend more time with his friends. He wants to be his own person. However, with so much weighing on his family - his parent's talk of separation, his grandpa's bad health, money struggles - the last thing Jay wants to do is disappoint the people he loves.

The clock starts ticking when his dad signs them up to perform their magic act at his school's talent show. Will Jay find the courage to speak his mind, or will he end up being the laughingstock of Barrington Middle School?

Sometimes, Jay wishes he could disappear for real!
