Witch & Wizard

By James Patterson, Gabrielle Charbonnet (Hardcover Book, 2009)
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?

  • "Fights and flights are non-stop in Maximum Ride.  The writing is visual and cinematic--things that kids expect from their video games, TV cartoon shows and action movies." 
    (USA Today).

  • "[Patterson] delivers an action-packed cross between Gertrude Chandler Warner's Boxcar Children and Marvel Comics' X-Men." (Booklist).

  • "Patterson is not just for adults anymore.  With the Maximum Ride series he has created edgy, taut thrillers that teens won't be able to put down.  The characters are easy to identify with and I can't wait to see what happens to Max and her family next!" (Blue Willow Bookshop).

  • "I highly recommend this book for adults, young adults, even pre-teens....I talked so much about this, and obviously enjoyed it so much that my 10 year old (girl) is reading (and loving) it now, my 15 year old (boy) wants to read it next and even my husband has expressed interest in it." (Mother Blogger Mama Fasha).

  • "I loved this book! It was sooo exciting and suspenseful that I literally jumped when something would happen.  The narrator's voice was hilarious; I laughed out loud in the middle of my English class!"
