The Impossible Boy by Mark Griffiths
Simon and Schuster ISBN 9780857075390
Things are not always as they seem. Blue Hills appears to be like so many other towns but on closer inspection the impossible is happening. When a new boy starts to entertain his schoolmates with inexplicable magic tricks, Gabby and Barney - aka Geek Inc - set out to investigate. They soon realise that the weird and mysterious goings-on could threaten the whole world and they mean to find out the truth. This is a fantastic page-turner that is sure to entertain boys and girls alike. Readers who enjoy a good mystery will wish they were members of Geek Inc to get in on the action.
