One Word to rule them all…in the hands of thirteen-year-olds.
Abandoned and alone, Daphna and Dexter Wax face dangers from all directions. The neighborhood gang wants Dex’s head, and the local party queens have it in for Daphna. And there’s the small matter of social workers. And police. But the twins are armed with the Book of Nonsense, and when it comes to the First Tongue, knowledge is power. And that power is amazing! Every day, the twins get better at wielding Words, and soon they’ll put an end to Adem Tarik’s plans to make his ‘Heaven on Earth’—whatever that means. Dex and Daphna can build their own paradise. But the world was never meant to be perfect.
