Christopher is 13 and often too smart for his own good. He hates school and can’t seem to stay out of trouble. On a dare he knocks on a door to a house all his friends say is haunted and meets a strange, quiet man who calls himself the Headmaster.
The Headmaster starts Christopher on a series of lessons unlike anything he was taught in school. He learns how to move objects with his mind alone, how to read other people’s thoughts, he becomes invisible or shrinks to the size of a pencil.
It’s not just for fun. The Headmaster has a mission for Christopher that will change his life forever.
