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?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Witch and Wizard is a moving tale where it combines The Hunger Games and Harry Potter. It's a dystopian tale that deserves tons of attention and the book is one of my all time favorites and the follow-up wasn't as good, but it was still amazing. Witch and Wizard was a book I finished in less then a week, and I think anybody who likes Harry Potter will read this fantastic book. TheBookReviewer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my all time faves!! I love this book & the author!! The chapters are short, and i never wanna stop reading this book. It is very suspensful and written amazingly. I have read this book a few times because i love it so much! I managed to read it within 24 hours:) I recommend it to people 15+ because there is some challenging vocab but great book overall:)!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Good! I was really annoyed with this book at first. I find the writing very immature! The writing drove me extremely crazy. Just because it’s for teens does it have to sound like a 10 year old wrote it? Teens are smart. Harry Potter is in the 7-9 categories and it is very intellectually written. Teen authors seem to underestimate our young readers. After I got over the writing I was able to focus on the story which in the end I really liked. I really liked that the kid’s powers actually worked when they used them and the powers were kinda cool. Lol I am really looking forward to the next book in the series!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Fun, Quick Read... I love the ideas that Patterson has come up with for his books, each one is out of the ordinary, fun to read, and full of action. He has created a series about kids who have wings, one where a boy hunts aliens using his aweome powers....and now, Patterson creates this new series where we have Wisty who's a Witch, and Whit who's a wizard... Wisty and Whit are siblings who went from living their regular life, to waking up and being taken away by soliders that surrounded their home. They have no idea what's going on, until a familiar face enters and reveals the accusation; Wisty has been accused of being a Witch and Whit is supposively a Wizard. Of course they think that this is crazy, how could they be such a thing? Well It's not as crazy as it sounds, Witsy and Whit soon discover their powers along the way...Wisty bursts into flames without being burnt, and Whit can stick his hand through the wall....and that is just the beginning of their powers.. What was once a regular world, soon changes when The One Who Is The One takes over and creates the New Order, which holds all new demanding rules that will change everything for it's worst..Kids are being put into prisons, families are being seperated...and now Wisty and Whit are being taken from place to place to be locked up. They are "extremely dangerous'', and what they find out leaves them in aboslute, heart stopping shock...they thought they were in danger now, but it's going to get a whole lot worse, and they have no way of stopping it.. This is an adventure where a brother and a sister do everything they can to stay alive a reach safety, along the way they both discover their powers, witness the new dangerous world, learn more about hidden secrets and find out the true reason of why they are prisoners. Whit also goes through the loss of his girlfriend, she mysteriously dissapeared, and he can't help but wonder what really happened to her, and where she is... This is a story where the world is turned upside down, there's a new leader in charge, and now Wisty's and Whit's life have an expiration date.. This was a good story, that was a lot of fun to read. The characters were cool, and the plot was awesome. James Patterson's type of writing is something to get used to; the chapters are only a couple of pages, and the writing is more of a fun, light writing style tied in with humour. It was a quick read that I enjoyed, The ending leaves you anxious to find out what happens next, so It'll be intersting to see what it's in store for Wisty and Whit.. 2010-004
