Thomas Fallgrout always thought of himself as a regular kid until he accidentally creates a little bit of magic using his grandpa's old potions. Suddenly, he's pulled from public school and enrolled in Pennybaker Academy for the Uniquely Gifted. Life is uprooted when a statue of the great Helen Heirmauser goes missing --- and everyone thinks Thomas is behind its disappearance. As his new friends turn on him, Thomas finds himself pairing up with his oddball next door neighbor Chip Mason. Together they work to hunt down the missing statue...only to discover that maybe what they've both needed to find all along was true friendship.
