The story When the Curtain Rises was an interesting story But also entertaining The main characters name is Chloe She goes to her great aunts house to visit for the summer She learned about some of her relatives, especially her great aunts father, who was a magician, about a hundred years ago Chloe also met a new friend, and she told her about a talent show that she wanted Chloe to play the piano in, but she had stage fright and didn t want to It was very good. Why in the world did this get a positive TEEN review &EBOOK ☠ When the Curtain Rises ☇ Chloe McBride has some reservations about accepting her elderly great aunts invitation to spend part of the summer with them in Little Venice, but her initial reluctance is outweighed by her curiosity about the mysterious key that came with her aunts note She s also anxious to put the humiliating memory of a disastrous piano recital as far behind her as possible Chloe s great aunts tell her the legend of her great grandfather, Dante Magnus, an ambitious magician who vanished without a trace almost a century earlier, and Chloe begins to search for clues to his disappearance When her investigations eventually lead her to a mysterious rosewood box, which has been hidden for almost a hundred years, Chloe s belief in the power of magic forces her to confront her own fears and ambitions
