When their home mysteriously explodes around their ears, twins Jack and Jaide are sent to stay with a grandmother they have never met, in a town they have never heard of. Portland might seem boring and quiet, but it soon becomes apparent that Grandma X is more than a little eccentric, and there are very strange happenings in the town. Talking cats, swarms of cockroaches, a miniature tornado trashing their room - the twins are about to find out what it means to be a troubletwister!
About the Author
Garth Nix is best known for his award-winning fantasies Sabriel, Lirael and Abhorsen and the seven books of the Keys to the Kingdom series. Sean Williams is best known for his award-winning space opera series and is the author of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, the Broken Land trilogy for young adults and the Books of the Change.
Gr 4-6-Twelve-year-old twins Jade and Jack's world turns upside down when a bizarre "storm" blows their home apart and nearly takes them with it. Following the strange event, their father disappears from their lives and they are taken to live with their mysterious Grandma X. From the moment they arrive, the twins' lives become ever more shocking with talking cats, a door that appears and disappears, a grandmother who can control the elements, and more. The twins are unaware that they are "troubletwisters" and must defend the world against evil. They soon realize that they have powers of their own that can, at times, be wild and dangerous. Garth Nix and Sean Williams's fun fantasy (Scholastic, 2011) is read by Miriam Margolyes who does a nice job of providing voices for all the characters and pacing her delivery perfectly for the non-stop action. A fun listen for fantasy lovers.-Deanna Romriell, Salt Lake City Public Library, UT (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
