Eleven-year-old Harry Mancini is not Harry Houdini, the famous escape artist who died in 1926. But Harry does live in Houdini's old New York City home, and he definitely knows everything there is to know about Houdini's life. What is he supposed to do, then, when someone starts texting him claiming that they're Houdini, communicating from beyond the grave? Respond, of course. It's hard for Harry to believe that Houdini is really contacting him, but this Houdini texts the secrets to all of the escape tricks the dead Houdini used to do. What's more, Houdini's offering Harry a chance to go back in time and experience it for himself. Should Harry ignore what must be a hoax? Or should he give it a try and take Houdini up on this death-defying offer? But what if Houdini wants more than just friendship with Harry? What if he actually wants to change places with him ... and leave Harry trapped in 1921? Best-selling author Dan Gutman understands what kids love to read, and his latest page-turning story is guaranteed to keep you gasping with surprise at an adventure no one would have predicted—especially not the boy it happened to.
