Witch and Wizard by James Patterson

This book came charging to the front of teen reading, because of its popular author and I, personally, was not swept into the race for it simply because of that fact. Although, I eventually did succumb to it and read it apprehensively, not knowing what to expect since this is my first Patterson book. To say it simply, I was presently surprised. The plot was always moving and the changing of perspectives was great. It was also good that he didn’t redo the same moments over and over again from different perspectives, because things can become dry and boring. Wisteria and Whitman know very little about where they come from and their capabilities, but they rally together through the love of their parents to become stronger people. My only dislikes were their magic and abilities seemed to come way too easily and were a little unbelievable to a very obvious point. The chapter organization was a little strange to me too. The book did end on an excellent cliffhanger filled with mystery, danger and possible death anyways. Overall, this book doesn’t have a ton of substance, but it is a fun easy read that will have you wanting more when it is over (which is good, because it looks like it will become a series). I enjoyed this book on the beach and I hope some other teens will too!
