The Lovereading4Kids comment

Two best-selling authors have teamed up to create this highly inventive, fast-paced new series. When twins Jack and Jaide receive a strange letter from Grandma X, a Grandma they have never heard of, they have little idea that they are about to be propelled into an extraordinary adventure. Jack and Jaide are great characters whose involvement in some very unusual happenings leads to a breathtaking and utterly compelling story.

Synopsis

Troubletwisters by Garth Nix, Sean Williams

Twin siblings Jack and Jaide discover they are pivotal to a secret supernatural organisation that protects the earth from marauding Evil!. Portland might seem like a quiet coastal town, and their grandmother is perhaps no dottier than anyone else's, but it soon becomes apparent that the strange things going on around them are anything But ordinary. It's all very well discovering that you suddenly have magical powers, but when you don't know exactly what they are, or how to use them, then facing impending peril doesn't seem like a very good idea at all...

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.
