Rating: ★★★★★

Nate, Summer, Trevor, and Pigeon run into a candy shop, and the owner decides to give them magic candy in return for certain tasks to help her recover a treasure that other people are trying to get to hidden somewhere in or near the city. After a while, though, the tasks start getting pretty suspicious, like stealing from a museum or erasing someone’s memory.

This brings up the question: Who are the good guys? (Besides Nate, Summer, Trevor, and Pigeon, of course.) Who are the bad guys? And what’s up with the guy who doesn’t look anything like Nate, but claims He’s Nate from the future and says that the candy shop owner is evil?
