Chase Tinker & The House of Magic - The Chase Tinker Series Book 1, by Malia Ann Haberman. (Still 0.99?)

In this delightful middle-grade thriller, 13-year-old Chase learns family secrets from his grandfather about his family's magical heritage - and seeks to find out the truth about whatever happened to his father.

"Haberman's story is filled with clever and funny magical details which will definitely capture the imaginations of Middle Grade readers. The "House of Magic" is an amazing place, with magical rooms, floating staircases, and endless spaces to explore . . . and seemingly endless ways four kids can get into trouble! At the house, Chase and Andy learn to perfect their own magical powers. They also learn the history of their family, the Tinkers, who have battled the Dark Enemy for generations, always fighting to preserve the mysterious "Relic" that holds the key to their magic.
Parents, this novel is appropriate for readers aged 10-14. There is no inappropriate language, and while there is an element of violence and heavy doses of suspense, I found nothing objectionable. There is a hint of romance between Chase and Persephone, but no overt sexuality. I see this as the kind of novel that both boys and girls will embrace, which is rare for children's literature. It's well-written, professionally edited, and tightly plotted. I recommend it highly." -- Amazon reviewer

In Chase Tinker's world, magic, lies and secrets can be a lethal combination...

Thirteen-year-old Chase Tinker can't understand why he has the power to move things with his mind. Besides that, his dad has been missing for over a year, causing his mom to be too upset to pay much attention to her sons, so now he's been busted for shoplifting. As if this isn't enough to worry about, his younger brother Andy suddenly has a weird magical ability too. Can things get any crazier? Chase thinks.

Then, a grandfather they thought to be long dead arrives at their door. He wants Chase and Andy to come visit him so they can learn about their supernatural heritage, and why they have magical powers in the first place.

The boys soon find out that Grandfather, along with their cousin Janie, lives on a remote island in the middle of Puget Sound in an out-of-this-world house where fantastic magic can be found in practically every room, stairway and corridor. Chase can't believe their dad has been keeping so much from them.

It's an even bigger shock when Chase learns that all their magic is controlled by a powerful and mysterious Relic in the attic, and if anything happens to this Relic, every bit of Tinker magic will be lost forever. He's even more disturbed when he learns his family has a dark and powerful enemy that is determined to steal all their magic, their house and their Relic.

Now Chase must find a way to stop these evil beings, while at the same time figuring out what has happened to his dad, unraveling even more Tinker lies and secrets and not letting on that he has a huge crush on the housekeeper's daughter.
