About David J. Wighton

David Wighton is a retired educator who enjoys writing youth novels when he's not on a basketball court coaching middle-school girls. The books in his Wilizy series peek at how people lived after the word's governments collapsed in the chaos that followed the catastrophic rise in ocean levels and the disappearance of the world's last deposits of oil. Luckily today, in the 2080s, the citizens of Alberta are safe because their It's Only Fair society uses brain-bands to zap people whenever they break a rule. That way, all children grow up knowing the difference between right and wrong. Unfortunately, they're also taught that women's ankles need to be covered so that men can't see them and turn into perverts. Plus, no-one in Alberta can have babies any more because the government manufactures them in a way that ensures that no child has an unfair advantage over any other child. All of this makes sense to Alberta's dictator, but not to Will and Izzy – two teenagers who are decidedly different from everyone else.

Wighton's novels have strong teenage characters driving the plot and facing challenges that, in many respects, are no different from what teenagers face today. His novels are intended to entertain and readers will find adventure, romance, suspense, humour, a strong focus on family, plus a touch of whimsy. Wighton also writes to provoke a little thought about life in today's societies and what the future might bring. Teachers may find the series useful in the classroom and the novels are priced with that intent in mind.

The Wilizy,against bad governments story is over :(

I read 10% of this before putting it down, there seems little hope of rekindling the story I enjoyed, Following a trend in the last two books to focus on consensual, non-consensual, and profit motivated sex, this story continues along the same path, but leaves out everything that caused me to enjoy the first books so much.

I won't be finishing this book or reading the others in the series.

What a great two part story! (Nary, Nary and Maddy's a Baddy). Maddy is such a wonderful determined little girl who won't quit in her search for her mommy and daddy. Meanwhile, the Wilizy family are after the men who went after Lucas. I didn't know who to hate more. The people who kidnapped Maddy/Karita or the untouchable judge. Talk about a finish!

David continues to produce excellent reading material and I am very grateful. Could be because its been a while since I read the earlier series, but the family is now large, and there is a sub-story for most. I found this one a bit too busy.

Make sure that you have the next book available so you can get past the cliffhanger at the end!

Writing style is excellent as we have come to expect.
