So that being said, the first one gets a four from me. May 25, T.
Cam and Alex are about to discover they're twin witches separated at birth. Like most of the other books written in the early '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 Daugh Cam and Alex are about to discover they're twin witches separated at birth. 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.
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.
Rereading always reminds me that writing has a million - trillion - styles. And I know what you're thinking. 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. I could never decide which particular twin was my favorite, though I love Alex's powers a lot more than Camyrn's.
Their interactions are fun, like when they bicker, or can be sad, like when they're grieving or discovering they're actually adopted.
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.
Nov 07, Tiffany Spencer rated it liked it. Twin sisters Camryn Barnes and Alexandra Fielding were separated when they were just minutes born by their guardians Karsh and Illeana and sent from the magical Coventry Island to our world where they adopted and raised by Sara Fielding and Dave Barnes and his wife Emily.
And their paths are about to cross again during the Barnes family vacation to a Western-themed Montana theme park. Not only do the twins discover each other, but during an incident where they save a family from a fatal death due to a rusty, broken down, Ferris wheel they also discover they have magical powers. NO WAY! Is what they delude themselves into thinking that either of their other halves even looks like them.
Much less can they be related. Meanwhile, a famous pop star goes missing and it's the talk of Marble Bay. With everything going on, the death of Alex's mother, Cam finding out the ugly truth about her birth, and their pending DNA results can the twins use their new abilities to get to the bottom of the dime diva's disappearance?
And then whose the scary, white, haired, skeletal-looking, "nightmare" man who keeps popping in and out of their lives at will? She's a little too calm. The same thing happens the first time Phoebe's has a premonition. That part was not only confusing to Cam herself but me.
Alex who's been nothing but snippy since the day she arrived at the Barnes just tells Cam she's not sticking around and doesn't make it a secret she takes offense to her life. When Cam gets snippy back she's surprised because she doesn't want to hurt her?
Why do people just think they can up and leave and it doesn't have an effect on the person they're about to leave or that they won't be hurt by it?
Are you really that clueless Alex? Children are blunt like that and tend to not hold anything back. Illeana probably was just saying what she saw. Nine times out of ten it wasn't meant as in insult. And then weren't they all together when they went in the theme park?
Shouldn't Cam and Alex have noticed each other then? A lot of plots going on in The Power of Two. We have events going on on Coventry Island, we have the twin's meeting for the first time, and discovering they have powers.
We have Alex's mother Sara 's death and Cam coming to terms with the fact that she's adopted. And to top that off the drama with their friends and the disappearance of pop star Marleigh.
And the lingering question of what Thantos end game is with the twins and what he really knows about their birth mom. I liked that twist that this isn't just a story about twin's reuniting that were separated at birth, but that hat the twins are witches I liked the way we were introduced to their powers Cam's at the soccer game and Alex's at the trailer and then we got the explanation of how they're abilities corresponded with their birth names Artemis and Apolla and the God and Goddess they were named after.
And I also thought it was clever how each twin's personality matched their amulets charms. Although sometimes honestly Alex annoyed me. From the moment she arrives at the Barnes she's snarky and RUDE to Cam about her lifestyle, her friend's, her family, etc. Just for no reason.
Yes, it's horrible Sara got lung cancer and died. And yes I KNOW it's not fair that she Cam got the apartment sized room with the designer this and that and the smartphone and you got the trailer.
Don't I know it? But to take that out on Cam? It's not her fault. A lot of times Alex really needed to let up. In the movie version Twitch's same sarcasm from Alex but it's not quite so hurtful. Here not so much! I also didn't care for Beth.
Beth was ridiculous to me. When Alex shows up and she and Cam start to bond Beth gets bitchy and snippy. Weren't you the one that told her to get to know her possible twin? You can't have it both ways Beth and get jealous when she does. The "mystery" wasn't a very hard one.
Ever page turned it pointed to Tonya Gladstone talking to the media. Although this might just seem like a subtle thing we really weren't given any other options.
Later on, we got Music and More guy. I think it was a lock after that when you found out about the emails being traced to the store and him missing you knew the two had something to do with one another.
Although it had been a while since I read this and I forgot about her involvement altogether and just remembered his in the back of my mind. And then we have the events of Coventry. Karsh, I liked as a character because he just always seems to be there. Even before the twins meet each other or him he's guided them.
He never took Camryn's necklace. He spoke to her in her dreams. Then all throughout the twin's different events, every single place they are we see a white-haired guy. Some people in life aren't that consistent and loyal. As for Ileana, I didn't think much of her in the beginning. I understood her motivations, but she just seemed flighty. Like she could bark out orders what not to do, but then where was she when the twins were in danger. Off with her boy toy.
I know people like that always quick to point out what they think someone else did wrong, but nowhere when it comes to helping. Even at the end, she criticized the twins without even saying who she was. I was surprised there wasn't more at the end. Such as a formal introduction from Karsh and Illeana to these poor girls who've had a hell of a 48 hours. They should have at least sat them down and given then the cliff note version.
But I guess that's for the next book. Honestly this book might have gotten a 4 or even a 4. I might have to read a couple more, 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 read this book in middle school and loved it so now that I'm an adult I decided to reread it and see if it held some of the same magic for me. Sadly it didn't as I now found some of the plot just completely crazy. But I did still love the characters all the same and still felt such a connection to both twins albeit I was more inclined to feel for Alex more as she lost much more during the book than Cam did.
But I loved the ending and how she sorta got some of it back in Cam's family. Very Fun Cute. I was looking for something quick, fun, and younger skewing to block out the world a bit.
Remembered the films which lead me to these novels.
Prefer the novels. Will keep reading. Mar 20, Amy Cornwell rated it it was amazing. Read this series as a teen. It was such a good series. I loved the sun and moon aspect. The characters were very enjoyable. May 25, Brenda rated it liked it. Not bad but very scripted writing that is tedious after a while. Sep 30, Diana rated it it was amazing Shelves: Scholastic Inc. ISBN Twitches. What does that sound like to you? This book is about two twin witches that never knew the other existed, until one day when they met each others' faces in an amusement park.
Cam Barnes and Alex Fielding were separated since they were born and never knew their true identities. They are actually from another "world" and unlike normal people, they have special powers pas Twitches: They are actually from another "world" and unlike normal people, they have special powers passed down from their parents.
Their uncle tries to steal their powers so he can take over the world,and so, he took the most powerful powers, which was from their father, his brother, and killed him. To be able to "capture" their powers, he pretends to be the best uncle ever, but deep down, he has a secret of his own, just like these twins themselves. It sounds very mysterious and that's what I like about it. It keeps me going to continue reading this book and at times, it makes me think deeper into this book.
Actually, I've seen this movie on Disney Channel and I liked watching the movie, too.
Still, I like watching the movie more because I like to see things more visually than to just mentally think about it. I think that it's better to see and hear something from your own eyes and ears, than instead of only with your eyes.
I would recommend this book because I liked it alot. It's about powers and mysteries, which I liked reading these books since I was young. I've always loved reading about mysteries because while reading, I like to guess along.
Although I don't really like the feeling of guessing, I think that it's fun to think about what is going to happen next in the book or a specific "case" in the book.
