Review: Stranger Things Have Happened by Jeff Strand | mxcareyes book blogBut when Marcus chokes during a card trick and leaves the audience unimpressed, prideful Zachary promises that he and Marcus are working on an illusion that will shock, stun, and astonish. That night, Zachary dies in his sleep. It would take a sorcerer to pull this off, but, hey, Marcus is the next best thing…right? The story opens with Marcus Millian III , the main character of the story, doing a simple card trick in front of his parents. He is a year-old freshman , short and stick thin, has curly red hair and freckles and has a girl best friend named Kimberly. He wants to be a magician just like his grandfather whom he calls either Grandpa Zachary or Zachary the Stupendous so he could bring the Millian name back into show business since the two generations of Millians after Zachary had gone into respectable careers: teaching and nursing.
Stranger Things Have Happened
Thank you! Marcus is a high school freshman whose vomit-inducing stage fright presents a major barrier to his dream of becoming a world-famous magician. Inspired and mentored by his great-grandfather, the retired Zachary the Stupendous, Marcus has been honing his craft since infancy. When his great-grandfather passes away unexpectedly, it is up to Marcus to uphold the family honor by developing and performing a truly spectacular illusion. With an ever narrowing window in which to prepare, combined with stress from school bullies and the aptly named Sinister Seamus, Marcus leans on his few friends to pull off the event. Marcus and his friends seem to dwell in a predominantly if not exclusively white world. Strand stuffs the dialogue full of witty banter, which is at first amusing, but over the course of the book, it gives the impression that each character, including the third-person narrator, is a would-be vaudevillian comic.
