Description - Troubletwisters: Troubletwisters 1 by Garth Nix

'Come to us, Troubletwisters, join us . welcome, most welcome!'

When their home mysteriously explodes around their ears, twins Jack and Jaide are sent to stay with a grandmother they have never met, in a town they have never heard of. Portland might seem boring and quiet, but it soon becomes apparent that Grandma X is more than a little eccentric, and there are very strange happenings in the town. Talking cats, swarms of cockroaches, a miniature tornado trashing their room - the twins are about to find out what it means to be a troubletwister!

Book Review: Troubletwisters: Troubletwisters 1 by Garth Nix - Reviewed by (05 Jun 2011)

It felt wrong to be buying a book by an Australian author whilst overseas, but I'm so glad I did! As a fan of both Garth Nix and Sean Williams, I knew I was in for a great read and "Trouble Twisters" did not disappoint.

Although this is a young adult book, the authors seem to treat their readers more maturely - the action moves at a steady pace and there's no condescending tone. What's more, there are talking cats - all the best books have talking cats, right?

If you like a good adventure of good vs evil, this book is for you.
