Kaylee Sperling is a social butterfly with a million acquaintances, but no real close friends. The closest thing she has is her pet gerbil, Mr. Pippi, and 150 notes from a random classmate who won't reveal who he is. But she's crossing her fingers it's the self-proclaimed magician and total hottie, Nate Hatfield. Nate needs an assistant for the upcoming talent show. When he spots Kaylee folding herself in half during gym class stretches, he nervously asks for help with his magic act. But after a disappearing mishap, resulting in an accident with one of Kaylee's only friends, Mr. Pippi, Nate must figure out how not only to keep his assistant, but someone who's come to mean much more to him than his illusions.
