A gift of a review

Here’s a great review from the NSW Association for Gifted and Talented Children:


“What is particularly enjoyable about this book is that because they are twins, Jack and Jade are co-protagonists. For once the girl is not the sidekick but shares the lead. This is a book that embraces giftedness in all its varieties; it recognises both the power of great potential and the dangers that go with it. This is a novel created by two masters of the craft: complex characters and relationships that avoid stereotypes but embrace archetypes in a modern setting; whimsical touches that appeal to the sophisticated reader; beautiful use of language to build a believable context. This is a novel that invites the reader in; this is a novel that will have readers looking over their shoulder and out of the corners of their eyes in case it merges with their own.”

The review concluses: “Very readable and a refreshingly original narrative, Troubletwisters is the beginning of a great series.”
