Eleven-year-old juggling enthusiast Sullivan’s life is turned upside down the night he glimpses a strange horse-drawn caravan outside his window and decides to follow it. He is thrilled to find an old-fashioned medicine show with performers who are his own age.

But thrill quickly turns to dread when he steps onstage for the magic act ... only to wake up imprisoned inside the caravan! Should he plot his escape and return to his safe but boring existence? Or could being kidnapped actually be the best thing that has ever happened to him?
