This book reads like an outline. Very skimpy with details even for a tween book.

I have read a couple of James Patterson's adult books and some teen ones and they were wonderful, but this book was a total let down. It was a rip off of Harry Potter with terrible character and story development. I had a hard time caring about the main characters and the comedy did not mesh well with the story. Ugh. I will pass on the rest of this series. Sorry JP and unknown writer.

As a first book in the series, I am proud to say James Patterson has returned to the glory of the first three Maximum Rides, and as much as I loved those first books (before everything went horribly wrong and there were useless trips to Antarctica to stop global warming...) Witch and Wizard was exciting. It was a relatively short book, and Patterson truly has an almost scary sense of a teenage mind.The switches between the two main characters were also not very hard to follow, and kept different perspectives that stayed individual. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, recommend it, and am excited to read the next two books. I just hope things don't go terribly wrong anytime soon.

This is an Awesome series. One of my Way Cool Teens told me to read it. I read the first two books in the series.

Mr. Patterson like the author of THe Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins, is a genius. He managed to write a really helpful book for teens and tweens that deals with important issues in a way that captured a wide audience of readers and hopefully moview viewers. They are supposed to be making a movie as well ! This book and series earned my respect for the famed author ...James Patterson. And i was always saying this and that about best sellers until i read this work ;-) Learn something new every day!

i love this book you must read this book because it is so funny

This is one of my favorite YA books of all time. Patterson kept me at edge with this fantasy adventure novel that made me excited. I recommend this book to anyone who likes the Maximum Ride series and is older then 10.

First book in the set. Read this in one sitting. James Pattersons YA novels are great for everyone. Packed with action and a fast moving story that still has heart. Male or female, young or old this one is good stuff. Will be reading the rest in the series.

Awesome story-line, and Svetlana Chmakova's( that's actually how you spell her name)artwork is amazing. Check out some of her books, like the Nightschool series.
