    The Power of Two, the first in a series that was mildly popular back when I was in elementary school, is one of those books that everybody I knew growing up had a copy of, but that very few people I was friends with ever seemed to have actually read I had a copy myself hand me down from an older cousin , but I only read it just recently It has an interesting premise, the idea of separated twins meeting again to learn about their powers and have adventures While the plot runs a bit deeper than that in the book itself, and it s not as hokey as I had expected, or less it s a pretty basic story The scenery was well written, and it was interesting to see a merging between the pop culture and cheesy fun of Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and the darker stuff of occult teen films like The Craft This book doesn t fall into a lot of stereotypes, and has some original content.There are a lot of pacing issues in terms of time, plot movement and other aspects, but something that also really stood out to me was the characters Both of them are really quite obnoxious, spoiled and annoying, although this behaviour dies down as the story goes on I think that this was possibly meant to imply character growth or anger at their situations, but it was hard to care about them at all when there was so little to admire in them right off the bat All in all I did like The Power of Two, but it isn t one of my favourite books.

    I have mixed feelings about this book I read it a decade ago, maybe even As a child I loved this series, and I continued to love it even into my teens Now that I am older I can t help but notice some flaws and wonder how I was not confused as a child In the first installment of the T witches series, Cam and Alex are twins who were separated at birth and run into each other at an amusement park After a tragedy, Alex moves in with Cam and together they solve The Case of the Missing Pop Star There are also a few other elements in this book that are touched upon throughout the series, such as a murderous uncle and a missing mother, albeit briefly When I started reading this book, I was surprised how long it took Alex and Cam to meet As a child it seemed so quick I also have a hard time faulting the book on its slow pace when it allows you a lot of time to get to know Cam and Alex s worlds Without a good understanding of their worlds the girls come off as bratty and annoyingly sarcastic at times They still are, but you understand where it comes from What really shocked me was the horrible construction of time For example One moment Cam and Alex are instant messaging each other Alex suddenly senses something and leaves Cam then decides to ask her parents if she was adopted She confronts them same day Right then Alex shows up at her front door, and it is supposed to be three days after she sensed something There were other moments when time didn t make sense or felt off I m also really torn about the characters They ride the line of being stereo types The only thing that makes me hesitate to say they are, is because there is to them than their characteristics They have friends, family, homes, and many things that support their characteristics while also making them individuals Again, it is a fine line However, as a kid I loved Alex I thought she was the coolest person ever, and I still like her the most This book may not be for adults, but as a kid I loved it I loved it so much that scenes of the series are engrained in my head, like when Alex s boyfriend calls her a little cabbage in french, or the annoyance I felt when Cam got stuck in a love triangle, the twins first birthday party together, the fact that one of the antagonist had brown eyes in one book and then had blue ones in another, and so much There s something to love about this book, even with its flaws.

    The only reason I gave this book three stars instead of two was because of the excellent way the book sets up the series The dialogue seemed fake dated and some of the characters are very annoying However, the plot is interesting and, like I said, the authors do a great job of setting up the series without it being overwhelming or taking away from the story.P.S There are two Disney channel original movies based on the book DON T watch them if you like the series When I say based on , I mean in the loosest possible sense.

    T Witches, the books, came out when I was in middle school, when I was about 10 years old I loved them They were witches a fascination I have never fully gotten over and based on the Greek twin gods Apollo and Artemis I obsessed over Artemis growing up My ICQ and AIM screen names were GoddessoftheHnt I know I was supercool back then But the reason I had a special love in my heart for this series is that it was the very first book I ever read where one of the characters lived in a trailer.Seriously.To this day, I would struggle to name another series where the main character lives in a trailer If it s not dystopian wastelands, then most YA is filled with perky middle class kids who live in the suburbs or, possibly, poor inner city kids Alex, named after my favorite goddess, lived in a trailer like me It was a sign.So years down the road, I look it up and see it s on Kindle Hell, I know it s written for tweens, but nostalgia urged me to overlook that That was a mistake.This was Bad So bad First, let s address the elephant in the room, to be polite See, apparently some incredibly misguided soul decided a 20 year old tween series wasn t popular any shocker , and the shot in the arm it needed was to shoehorn references to modernity in like shotgun blasts any mention of cell phones is now updated to smartphone They learn about the pop singer s disappearance through Twitter, not the news Not only am I sure that this was not the key to skyrocketing interest with today s tweens, it also effectively killed off any nostalgic enjoyment you may have had It s hard to have fond memories of a book when it keeps throwing brand names at you in a desperate bid for relevance It s doubly hard when it leads to the bizarre juxtaposition of late 90s slang and references to landlines, beepers, and dialing 411 with references to iPhones and YouTube.Oh, and that slang Wow Just wow I would almost recommend this book just to see how bad it is And not in a, Oh, man, we used to really talk like that way, but a no one ever talked like that way At one point, Cam smugly thinks she s getting cool at that Because cool means good, right So they re interchangeable, right It s an appalling attempt at hipness that is almost so bad it s good.The rest of it is pretty prosaic, as it goes The plot is typical tween fare, the characters middling The only other noteworthy thing about it is the transparency of this cash grab update I stopped counting the typos and formatting errors after a while because they were too numerous at one point there was literally a typo every other page I m giving this one two stars, because I still have fond memories of it, but it s probably best to continue temembering it as it was, not as it is now.

    2.5 stars Synopsis Twins with magic powers separated at birth meet up shortly before their 15th birthday, and start discovering enhanced superpowers due to a series of near unbelievable coincidences Mysterious guardians and an evil uncle are involved Pros I m a sucker for any concept of twin siblings based off Apollo and Artemis It is one of those weird personal preferences And I do like the concept of their respective areas of power, particularly Cam s Cons So many exaggeratedly strange speech patterns So much abruptness in plot and character progression So much randomised switching of PoVs from multiple third person limited to third person omniscient and back It did not help that the only characters I actually liked were the adoptive parents Verdict I question younger me s reading choices sometimes.

    Okay, before I even being my review, I d like to point something out that nobody seems to understand The title of this series is not TWITCHES, it is T WITCHES, as in TEE WITCHES, as in twin witches And for those who don t agree, I would like to quote Alex at the end of the first book I m not sure whether you re thinking Twins Or Witches Cause it came out T Witches Not, Cause it came out Twitches I never even watched the stupid Disney adaptions simply on the principle they mispronounced the title And if for some crazy reason the authors actually did mean it to be Twitches, well I don t even want to know because that just sounds DUMB Anyway, I did like the book, even if it was meant for a younger demographic than mine There were two major things I can t believe got past editing, though the first one being the only one I actually noticed, which is that the word wringing is used twice, the second time spelled incorrectly as ringing which is technically correct, but not when used in the context of wringing your hands, which it was both times The second, much larger one, I shamefully admit I didn t actually notice while reading it But I read another review that pointed it out and was shocked the timeline is incredibly off in one part STOP NOW TO AVOID A SPOILER.So, Alex and Cam are instant messaging each other on what we assume is Tuesday and Alex suddenly leaves because she gets an awful gut feeling about her mom She runs home and finds her mom at the hospital The doctor tells her Sara the mom is going to die before morning Now, on this same day, Cam discovers, after quitting her convo with Alex, that she was adopted While reeling with this shocking news, she predicts the doorbell will ring, and that it will be Alex It is And when Alex comes inside and tells Cam that Sara died, she mentions that Sara died on Wednesday morning, and that the funeral was on Friday, which is today.Hold on, wasn t Cam just instant messaging Alex like, a few hours ago Because, although the story is told from both perspectives, and Alex s timeline moved ahead to the funeral and then to Cam s house, Cam was perpetually in the same situation for what is that, THREE DAYS Does time move much, much slower in Massachusetts than in Montana I don t think so, I think the writer s weren t reading each other s work closely enough The only thing, I guess, that could make this work properly would be if, at the beginning of Cam s chapter right after the one where they were IMing the author had forgotten to say something like, a few days after talking to Alex, or Cam finally gathered the courage to talk to her parents on Friday Her IM conversation with Alex on Tuesday had been too provoking Because Cam s sections don t really instigate any time change, so you just assume it s picking up from where her last section left off I like Alex best, I think most readers do Cam can be kind of annoying, but I guess I relate to Alex to begin with I had blue streaks in my hair once, too and I STILL think it was totally awesome And yeah, some of the dialogue is very nineties and kinda cheesy, but hey, you get that in the older Anita Blake novels, too I don t care what the other reviews are, I liked it, and I ll definitely continue reading the series It s a quick read and totally reminds me of my childhood.

    3.75 I was really nervous to read this, because I really really loved this book when I was kid, and I was terrified it wouldn t live up And well, it didn t, because I built it up too much in my head, but it wasn t actually bad My biggest complaint stems from the fact that I read a brand new kindle book instead of trying to find an old copy, and sometime since it was published in the early 2000 s it s been updated, so it was really disconcerting to see twitter and iPads mentioned in a book I read as a kid, I was kind of looking forward to the throwbacks Honestly this book might have gotten a 4 or even a 4.5 if not for so much of it focusing on a missing pop star instead of witch stuff, I know it was par for the course with these formulaic early 2000 s YA series, but still I might have to read a couple , maybe the whole series if they keep being decent, I never finished the series when I was a kid, so it would be cool to finally see how it all turns out.

    I really enjoyed reading this book and I look forward to reading in the series this is book 1 A good YA paranormal series, no sex or foul language If I had to compare it to any series I d say it s along the lines of Marley Gibson s Ghost Huntress series My 11 year old daughter didn t care for it too much she wouldn t tell me why.

    Kat Mandu saysCam and Alex are about to discover they re twin witches separated at birth When an incredibly well planned coincidence ends up with them meeting for the first time, their lives will never be the same.Like most of the other books written in the early 2000 s, this is kind of cheesy fantasy that really ruled the shelves back in the day when Independent Readers was a genre that really drew the line between upper middle grade and young adult It has similar tones to Sweep by Cate Tiernan and Daughter of the Moon by Lynne Ewing Books innocent in tone compared to the darker books on the shelves today I ve been reading a lot of older books like this so it s a nice change of pace.I ll also admit that I know this series was made into two movies featuring the Mowry twins I never actually watched them They seemed kind of goofy and by the time the movies came out, I was in a different phase where all the teen lingo that was popular didn t appeal to me and I almost found it annoying.However, the book series was always different to me Rereading always reminds me that writing has a million trillion styles Twitches have their own.And I know what you re thinking Twin sisters meeting up for the first time and discovering they have these hidden powers and are meant to do good with it Can we say cliche Well, yeah But I m taking into account of when this was written and the trend of the day was twins with fantastic powers I have a different feel for it that I can t really describe Maybe because it s one of my favorite series from when I was growing up, so I have a slightly hypocritical fondness for it I can t seem to explain.But either way, I do like this series I could never decide which particular twin was my favorite, though I love Alex s powers a lot than Camyrn s I really adore their silly, young characters and can somewhat to relate to them in a weird way They make it real for me than the plot obviously Their interactions are fun, like when they bicker, or can be sad, like when they re grieving or discovering they re actually adopted.So that being said, the first one gets a four from me I ll have reviews for the rest of the series coming soon, and I don t think they get as high of ratings, but I still love Twitches.
