Summery:The world is changing: 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 torn from their parents one night and slammed into a secret prison for no reason they can comprehend. The New Order, as it is known, is clearly trying to suppress Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Being a Normal Teenager. But while trapped in this totalitarian nightmare, Wisty and Whit discover they have incredible powers they’d never dreamed of. Can this newly minted witch and wizard master their skills in time to save themselves, their parents–and maybe the world?
I really enjoyed Maximum Ride by James Patterson. I wanted to take a chance on Witch and Wizard to see if i would like other James Patterson books…and i am happy to say i do. The book was full of all the things i like, action with a touch of adventure and the supernatural. Win, win!
the story is pretty much about the lives of brother and sister. you watch them struggle threw the new order and escape to save there parents and there death sentience. They are the ones who will save the people from The One Who is the ONE! Whit and Whisty have to free from there jail cell. They discover they are a witch and wizard, and The One who is The One wants them dead. They are stuck by other kids who have disobeyed the New Order. The book is set in the 21st century but with a twist, Stepping back to the time of Burning Witches in the Salem period.
The beginning of the book starts off crazy where you don’t really know what’s going on. After you read more you start to connect the pieces together. It has it’s funny moments, like Whisty, She is a very sassy girl. There is some sad parts, but i can’t say any of it made me feel sad to the point of tears…it was pretty much those sad parts where you just frown and keep reading.
Overall: I loved the book The connection of a brother and sister is the most powerful. it was nice to read about two siblings protecting each other and have such a strong connection. I HIGHLY recommend this book.
