Summary:

The Magician is the now famous story of two sixteen-year-old antagonists locked in the crucible of their high school from which neither can escape.

Ed Japhet gives a skillful performance of magic at the school prom. After the prom, Ed and his girlfriend are beset by Urek, the leader of a school gang that extracts extortion money by "renting" kids their own lockers. Ed is the only student who refuses to pay extortion money. Urek's fury at Japhet's defiance results in an attempted murder, a criminal trial, and death, with a shocker of an ending.

"This book is phenomenal. I couldn't put it down. It is the story of an adolescent who is exploring his own sexuality and magic. He is caught in a web of legalities and represented by a true magician."-a reader, Amazon.com
