The uncle tries to steal the baby twins at birth to take adva Twitches: The uncle tries to steal the baby twins at birth to take advantage of their powers to take over the world. The power of 2 are stronger then alone. When combined, their powers are the strongest.
When joined, their great power awakens. Great power is very easily sensed by their uncle, therefore it would be easier to find them.
That is the reason why the two were separated at birth; their mother put them far away from each other so their uncle can't find them.
I would recommend this book for teenagers because teenagers are normally interested in supernatural things. Some teens like to read about magic, fantasy,etc. I think this book would bring a lot of thrill to the reader.
Great for people who love to interpret what happens next. To be honest, I remembered this series from my childhood as being very interesting and dealing with a lot of issues that are important. Now I read it again, because I got that need for something nostalgic, and I can't find what it is I liked about this as a child.
Maybe I did like it back then, but I don't think it's a book I would give to a child to read now. Though I'm sure many would like it.

In my opinion, the story deals more with issues of death, dealing with it, family, being accepted in your family, accepting others as they are and other such issues than it does with the fact that the twins have powers. I appreciate that about the book, yet the whole thing with the powers doesn't seem needed.
The fantasy part of the story with that other world is a bigger part of the story than the actual powers are as well. It's a very predictable story as well, I remember very well how I figured everything out as a child. In any case, I won't be rereading the rest of the series. Though I do remember it getting better as the series goes on, so maybe if I have a sudden need for nostalgia again..
Who knows. Mar 05, Kirsten rated it it was amazing. Twins and Witches! What could be better?

Camryn and Alex are exact opposites but for some reason they make the perfect sisters in this thrilling novel. With their fates tied to both the human world and their birth world, Camryn and Alex have to cope with far more than the typical teenager.
Twins destinies in both worlds Teen me: If the book is a stand alone, I will go with whatever rating I feel most comfortable giving the book. Please note, I do not really think books should have an age limit. People should read what they want to regardless of the intended age group, Teen me: People should read what they want to regardless of the intended age group, except for kids reading erotica or something, of course. I just recently reread the book as an adult.
While I still enjoyed the story, I realized just how dated this book was with all the pop culture references: I did enjoy the references though as they are my childhood, but newer readers might be confused. Aug 24, Jerry rated it really liked it. The Good: At its core, this was an enjoyable "young adult" drama that didn't have the content problems--illicit sex, profanity, etc. It's different than the Disney Channel interpretation, but, in some ways, that's actually better.
The story takes many twists and turns, but kept me going the whole way through.
The Bad: Though I liked the book as a whole, I did think one character's disparaging remark about God was unnecessary. Some discer The Good: Some discerning readers may take offense to that. If you're going into this expecting a novelization of the DCOM, you're going to be disappointed Feb 18, Christina rated it really liked it Shelves: She, like many others falling under the Goddess' name are why I chose the name as a nickname growing up.
However if you're a fan of the series I recommend avoiding the Disney channel movies like they are the plague. Especially if you love characters like Karsh, and his protege.
Jan 15, Sarah Crawford rated it really liked it. The first novel opens by examining the lives of both girls, Alex and Cam, where they are living, what they are going through and so forth. The girls are brought together but initially refuse to accept that they are really twins. They use their powers for good, of course.
Early in the story they even manage to save the lives of an entire family on a ferris wheel.
The story is well done, especially in the personalities given to the two girls. It is interesting to see how growing up in totally differ The first novel opens by examining the lives of both girls, Alex and Cam, where they are living, what they are going through and so forth.
It is interesting to see how growing up in totally different environments changes the girls, yet it's also interesting to see how, in their cores, they are still twins, meshing well with each other. I really liked the first book and am looking forward to reading the rest in the series. Okay, so this book was very enjoyable and it took me hardly 3 or 4 days to skim through it.
The character development was great and I liked Alex's character the most. I mean the girl was just damn unlikable aka likable to me.
But the writing was VERY shabby. I mean sometimes I could not even understand what the authors meant. And the short forms were horrible! They might as well start calling parents 'rents. Too much slang. But it was fast paced and sometimes cliche but Alex made up fo 3. But it was fast paced and sometimes cliche but Alex made up for it.
I didn't like the way "rich" girls character was portrayed. They are not necessarily like that, I think. This is totally for kids of age But I think I might continue with the series.

Jan 17, Annie Combest-friedman rated it liked it Shelves: This is the first in a series of books about twin witches who are young and powerful but separated at birth.
They meet and their powers get unleashed. It is a great series for young readers because it deals with real emotions about adoption and loyalty. It also deals with the influence of a person's upbringing on their perspectives about life. This series wouldn't be on my shelf because it doesn't have a realistic connection to school but I would definitely recommend this book to young readers w This is the first in a series of books about twin witches who are young and powerful but separated at birth.
This series wouldn't be on my shelf because it doesn't have a realistic connection to school but I would definitely recommend this book to young readers who like fantastical books and the thought of magic. The witches are teens so they deal with regular teen problems plus the newly discovered concept of being a twin with magic. Mar 08, Laura Barton rated it liked it.

I am still to this day thoroughly disappointed that this series was never finished and that we are left hanging, never to find out what happens and never receiving and sort of conclusion, which is another big reason for the 3 stars.
Jul 08, Jannah Cloud Child rated it really liked it Shelves: Loved these when I was younger, obsessively bought the books, searched for as much info as I could about them.. And I remember being completely outraged at the horrible movie adaptations churned out by Disney. I know if I came across these books now I'd probably choke with laughter at the cheesiness even my love for the series could discern that but secretly hoard them just because.
Perfectly aimed at year old girls who aspire to be.. I did not know what to expect when I started the book. It turned out to be quite interesting in the end. The book was a litter darker then I expected but it gave a supporting foundation to the story by having it. The story does not give out all the important details right away, and it still holds quite a few back for the next book in the series.
All in all the book was well written and planned out to minimize confusion with the characters. If you have seen the movie I will tell you that the book I did not know what to expect when I started the book. If you have seen the movie I will tell you that the book series is way different, but worth reading if you were a fan of the idea of the movie.
