Can Zevi use his psychic powers to save the life of a famous movie star?

Sudden fame throws thirteen-year-old Zevi into the spotlight when the media discovers his secret abilities--and it's ruining his life! He wants fame as an actor, not as a psychic. So when Robert Lemon, a famous actor, comes to town to film a movie, Zevi hopes this is his chance to turn things around. Until he begins to sense that the star's life is in danger. When "accidents" start befalling Robert Lemon on the movie set, it's up to Zevi to use his gift to save the famous actor.

The epub edition of this title is fully accessible.
