After escaping imprisonment by the totalitarian regime known as the New Order, siblings Wisty and Whit Allgood, who possess magical powers, establish themselves as leaders of the Resistance, a hidden community of teenagers like themselves. *Author: Patterson, James/ Rust, Ned *Series Title: Witch and Wizard *Publication Date: 2011/10/25 *Number of Pages: 340 *Binding Type: Paperback *Grade Level: 7-9 *Language: English *Depth: 1.25 *Width: 5.50 *Height: 8.25
From the Publisher:
Ever since Whit and Wisty Allgood were cruelly torn from their home and family in the middle of the night, the soldiers of a brutal totalitarian government have relentlessly tried to capture and execute them for "collusion, conspiracy, and experimentation with the dark and foul arts." But this increasingly skilled witch and wizard have boldly spearheaded the fight against the wicked regime of the New Order and its systematic destruction of music, art, books, and imagination. Now the villainous leader of the New Order is just a breath away from the ability to control the forces of nature and to manipulate his citizens on the most profound level imaginable--through their minds. There is only one more thing he needs to triumph in his evil quest: the Gifts of Whit and Wisty Allgood. And he will stop at nothing to seize them.

In this second installment of James Patterson's epic Witch & Wizard series, Whit and Wisty's heart-pounding adventures through the Overworld and Shadowland lead to a jaw-dropping climax and conclusion.
Annotation:
Whit and Wisty were sometimes pretty freaked out when they were captured, imprisoned by, and then escaped from the New Order. Now they are the brave leaders of the Resistance, a group that goes to great and dangerous lengths to help other kids who the scary, violent organization has nabbed. Along with their regular duties with the Resistance Whit and Wisty now also figure out what the One means when he says that Wisty "Has the Gift." The adventures abound in this final installment in James Patterson's Witch & Wizard series.
Author Bio
James Patterson
James Patterson grew up in Newburgh, New York, 50 miles north of New York City. Valedictorian of his class at the Christian Brothers school, St. Patrick's, in 1965, Patterson graduated from Manhattan College with a degree in English. He first entertained the idea of becoming a writer in 1971 when he worked as a college student in a mental institution, a job that afforded him abundant time to read. He came up with the idea for his first novel during that time, and five years later, after 26 rejection slips, his first effort, "The Thomas Berryman Number", appeared in bookstores. Since that time, Patterson has written numerous best-selling thrillers featuring the sensitive, modern-day hero Alex Cross, including "Kiss the Girls", which was made into a major motion picture starring Morgan Freeman.
