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.

"Zevi is Jewish, and this important part of his identity is skillfully woven throughout the narrative. This hi-lo title excels in the genre, packaging an accessible, dyslexia-friendly text with a compelling plot and likable protagonist whose journey readers will happily follow. Highly recommended."
- School Library Journal

"Action-packed, with danger and adventure in every chapter…the story delves into Zevi’s Jewish heritage and culture in a natural way that is enlightening and interesting for readers. Highly Recommended."
