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?
Well, we won't have to wait much longer for this book, will we? I think it looks quite interesting, and I love the cover. The fiery faces and flaming W is what first attracted me to this book. That and the author, James Patterson. I've read another one of his books (Maximum Ride) and liked it, so I'm willing to bet that this one will be good too.
