Waiting on Wednesday (8)

“Waiting on Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine

Witch and Wizard by James Patterson
Release Date: December 14th, 2009
Pages: 320

Everything is about to change. The government has seized control of every aspect of society, and now kids are disappearing. For 15 year-old Wisty and her older brother Whit, life turns upside-down when they are hauled out of bed one night, separated from their parents, and thrown into a secret compound for no apparent reason. It's clear that the new government will stop at nothing to suppress Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Being a Normal Teenager.

For the sister and brother, the chaos started when Whit's girlfriend, Celia, was spirited away in a black van, never to be seen or heard from again. Locked inside their cells, the two fear that they have been taken to the very same complex that swallowed Celia and realize that a daring escape is their only hope of survival.

While imprisoned together, Wisty and Whit start exhibiting strange abilities and powers they never knew they possessed. Their new talents lead them to believe that maybe there is a reason they were singled out. Can this newly minted witch and a wizard master their skills in time to save themselves, their parents--and maybe the world?

I loved the Maximum Ride books by James Patterson (though they have slightly gone down hill…) and read Daniel X (though wasn’t a fan at all…) and will continue to try his teen series with this one. It sounds good.

I need to check out those Maximum Ride novels...the only James Patterson books I've read have been the sappy, sad, romantic ones.

Kristen said...

I've only read the first Maximum Ride. It's nice to see Patterson branching into YA still.

Eli said...

Jazz said...

I'm surprised Patterson has written a book about witches and wizards. But maybe that's just because I haven't read his other stuff. XD
