Review
Gr 4 – 6 — Twelve-year-old twins Jade and Jack's world turns upside down when a bizarre "storm" blows their home apart and nearly takes them with it. Following the strange event, their father disappears from their lives and they are taken to live with their mysterious Grandma X. From the moment they arrive, the twins' lives become ever more shocking with talking cats, a door that appears and disappears, a grandmother who can control the elements, and more. The twins are unaware that they are "troubletwisters" and must defend the world against evil. They soon realize that they have powers of their own that can, at times, be wild and dangerous. Garth Nix and Sean Williams's fun fantasy (Scholastic, 2011) is read by Miriam Margolyes who does a nice job of providing voices for all the characters and pacing her delivery perfectly for the non-stop action. A fun listen for fantasy lovers.—Deanna Romriell, Salt Lake City Public Library, UT --Deanna Romriell (Reviewed November 1, 2011) (School Library Journal, vol 57, issue 11, p72)
