Carter Lock(e):
Theo, Leila, Ridley, Olly, Izzie, Mr. Vernon and Mr. Vernon

The Story:

This book was awesome for young readers. Carter has it pretty rough, his parents disappear, he is stuck in the care of a shiftless petty criminal uncle. One day he’s had enough.really teed off said uncle and hops a train and lands in Mineral Wells. In Mineral Wells Carter finds friends that share a love of magic and a distaste for criminals. That’s fortunate because one of the rudest is in their town. Carter and the rest of the Misfits work together to take down the criminals. And we learn that maybe Carter’s landing in Mineral Wells wasn’t just luck but fate.
I really enjoyed this book. The characters were easy to imagine and Neil Patrick Harris brought them to life masterfully on the audio book. I only regret I wasn’t on a road trip with my nieces and nephews to share the story with them.
