Publisher's Summary

A Sudden Outbreak of Magic stars Kelley and Jeroan Strickland, twin teenagers whose family just moved to Dubuque, Iowa. One cold morning in November, Kelley gets "infected" by magic after reading aloud from a small leather bound book she finds. She also blows up the family home in the process. Soon Kelley and Jeroan must face up to a power-hungry, centuries-old Sorcerer who wants to rid the world of what he calls "renegade" magic-users. Only Kelley's new way of using magic will save their new city and their magically infected friends, though she may lose her brother in the process. A Sudden Outbreak of Magic is a novel about ancient power, growing up, and finding your place within those two very different realms.

this was not bad. but it did have flaws I think.

this book wasn't bad, but it wasn't my favorite magic book out there. I was to happy that the kids didn't really take things seriously about using magic. but again they are just kids.
I was kind of offend by the terms: "white girl, black girl, white guy, black guy", I just found it odd to be thought of that way. The narrator did a good job for the most part but had a few miss haps.
I was gratefully provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator for an unbiased review via Audio Boom..
