Wish List Wednesday 2

Wish List Wednesday is my version of Breaking the Spine's Waiting on Wednesday. I'm not really "waiting on" anything, since most of the books I want are already out.


Witch and Wizard

by James Patterson
Pub. date: December 09
"The world is changing—the government has seized control of almost everything and kids are disappearing. For 15 year-old Wisty and her older brother Whit, life turns upside-down when they are hauled out of bed one night, separated from their parents, and thrown into a secret compound for no reason they can comprehend, except that the new government is clearly trying to suppress Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

Imprisoned together in a decrepit cell, Wisty and Whit cling to the only things they have left—a blank book, a drum stick, and each other. While searching for ways to escape, both begin exhibiting strange abilities. Maybe there is a reason they were singled out!

Can Wisty and Whit, a witch and a wizard, master their skills in time to save themselves, their parents—and maybe the world? From James Patterson, the creator of the bestselling Maximum Ride and Daniel X novels, comes WITCH & WIZARD, his most terrifying and awe-inspiring series yet."


This sounds really good! There's an excerpt in the back of Daniel X: Watch the Skies, and after reading it, I want more. It seems like it'll be way different from Maximum Ride and Daniel X, and different is always good. Where the others were all action and sarcasm, I think Witch & Wizard will turn out to be more dystopian, which I love!
I think that's really all I can say about W&W. I wonder if I can get an ARC?
