" If you always feel fully and completely happy, my friends, then you do not need my drops and I will not sell them to you for any amount of money. " Master Melville Eleven-year-old juggling enthusiast Sullivan Mintz helps his family run the Stardust Home for Old People. It s not ideal: his best friend, Manny, is eighty-one years old. But life as usual turns upside down when Master Melville s Medicine Show comes to town. Sullivan s excitement at finding performers his own age dissolves into dread when he steps onstage for a magic act only to wake up imprisoned in the traveling show s caravan. As his fears subside, his questions multiply. Is his family better off without him? Would life as a juggler performing with other kids be worse than living in an old folks home? Being kidnapped could be the best thing that ever happened to him . . . or decidedly not."
