    We are currently reading Emma Haughton’s Now You See Me.

    Three years ago, Hannah's best friend Danny vanished without trace. Not knowing if he's alive or dead, she struggles to move on with her life, until suddenly, impossibly, Danny is found. But instead of closure, the discovery brings a wave of secrets and suspicion. Is Hannah willing to expose the painful truth? Or is it better to live in the dark?

The great task of making things well again falls on Bastian and so begins a dazzling, magical adventure.
