Twelve-year-old Jackson is accepted into a program at the Sentia Institute after an encounter with a stage hypnotist—and because he's actually the descendent of powerful hypnotists. At the institute, Jackson begins honing his skills, but soon realizes that hypnotism will be the key to his survival. Korman's novel is simply yet vividly narrated by Ramon de Ocampo in a subtle performance that allows the author's material to shine. de Ocampo's subtle shifts in tone give the characters original and unique voices. As Jackson, de Ocampo is an easygoing yet determined young man with an incredible gift, and when it comes time to use that gift, de Ocampo's delivery is pitch-perfect. Ages 8–12. A Scholastic hardcover. (July)
