Suzanne’s Diary for Nicholas by James Patterson – Book Review

Prepare your tissues as this book will not leave you dry-eyed. Full of love and more love and more love and a lot of loss, the book follows two couples who have something in common. Matt has been with both women and both have a baby.

This change-of-pace love story is a powerfully moving novel about families, loss, and new love. When the man Kate loves disappears, he leaves behind a diary, a letter from a new mother to her baby son about how she and the boy’s father met. An unforgettable piece, at once heartbreaking and full of hope. “Compelling… superbly enhanced by Baker’s narration… highly recommended.”—Booklist

James Patterson * Witch and Wizard

Witch_and_Wizard_Cover The world is changing: the government has seized control of every aspect of society, and now, kids are disappearing. For 15-year-old Wisty and her older brother Whit, life turns upside down when they are torn from their parents one night and slammed into a secret prison for no reason they can comprehend. The New Order, as it is known, is clearly trying to suppress Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Being a Normal Teenager. But while trapped in this totalitarian nightmare, Wisty and Whit discover they have incredible powers they’d never dreamed of. Can this newly minted witch and wizard master their skills in time to save themselves, their parents–and maybe the world?

“They’re afraid of change, and we must change. They’re afraid of the young, and we are the young. They’re afraid of music, and music is our life. They’re afraid of books, and knowledge, and ideas. They’re most afraid of our magic.”
