His parents won't let him play soccer so he will have more time to concentrate on school, he goes home from school with his new next door neighbor Nora, who is in his grade, but in the gifted and talented class and a bully named Jackson is picking on him. After Mike and Nora find a magic shop though, Mike begins to learn to do magic tricks and Nora helps him with his school work and things start looking up.
