In Witch & Wizard, the first book in James Patterson’s exciting new Family Pageturner series, 15-year-old Wisty and her older brother, Whit, have just had a rude awakening…literally. Torn from their beds by forces of the New Order, and thrown into a secret prison, the two teens try to fight their growing despair that began the day before, when Whit’s girlfriend, Celia, was spirited away in a black van. Then something extraordinary happens: Wisty and Whit suddenly develop strange powers they manage to control, somewhat awkwardly, to make their daring escape.
Now, this newly minted witch and wizard must master their considerable skills to save not only themselves, but those they love and, from the way things are looking, the world!

I was curious about the story line and enjoy collaborating authors, especially when the story line is not of their usual genre. The first few chapters reeled me in and I sprinted to the local library for the second book. Both the library and I are waiting for the third in the series and the librarian felt it best to read in sequence before going on to the fourth book. I enjoy young adult literature that does not dumb down for the readers and this book delivered.
