As a young boy, Andy Duckerman was a camp legend at the Institute of Magic, a mountain retreat that hosts aspiring young magicians each summer. Now, at 35, he’s struggling to make ends meet as a professional illusionist. But when the Institute invites him to return as a counselor, Andy finds himself in charge of the greenest and most awkward wannabe magicians and having to deal with his former partner (and now fellow counselor), Kristina Darkwood.
