The plot is a bit muddled for the single-digit crowd and some of the narrative stretches push the envelope even for children's lit...and those dangling threads at the end don't entice so much as annoy. But if "pre-teen gothic" were a genre then I suppose this dark little romp in an Addams Family vein would be an adequate example.

Thank you NetGalley and Del Rey for sending this book for review consideration. All opinions are my own.

5 stars…I loved this book from start to finish.
Mister Magic was a beloved children’s show featuring six friends who played together and learned life lessons from the titular character, a magical man with a cape and top hat. Thirty years after the show came to a sudden end and the internet has speculated about the mysterious lack of evidence that it even existed, the friends come together again for a reunion podcast. They all want to know more about why the show ended, why there are gaps in memories, and why it all seemed too incredible to be real.

I was intrigued by the premise of this book, because it reminded me of a “creepy pasta” I read once about an internet forum discussing an old kid’s show they all watched. As the story progresses, they slowly realize that there was something very wrong about the show. So I was hoping for something similar but fleshed out more, and I can confirm that Mister Magic met and exceeded my expectations. This is definitely a creepy story, and there’s a particular scene that made my skin crawl, but I won’t spoil it here. It’s also a story about how even from childhood, we’re taught to smooth our edges in order to make other people comfortable. And so often it’s because of contrived rules made in the name of a higher power. There are thoughts you shouldn’t think and things you shouldn’t do if you want to have worth. White uses the idea of a children’s show cast reunion to give a glimpse of the affects that can have on us as adults too while keeping the story fast-paced and interesting.

I didn't know this was inspired by the mythology of the Minotaur until partly into the story, but I was excited when I realized it. I love a mythological or Fairytale retelling, or a story that uses folklore heavily for inspiration. Hide did that without making the outcomes obvious. White did a good job of combining the ancient myth with commentary on today's society, while still keeping me on the edge of my seat.
