about this item
Exploring the notions of freedom and what it means, mega-bestselling author James Patterson has created a world in which the New Order has destroyed individuality and created a dangerously strict society. Teen siblings, Wisty and Whit, wake one morning to imprisonment and accusations of witchcraft and wizardry. Baffled, but soon discovering that they do indeed have powers, the pair must fight to stay alive, and save everyone else, too!
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?
