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 is a great series! Every book is different but still with fun and interesting boys and girls with magical skills and powers. I think Maddy is the best of them all.

I commented on Nary, but I have to say something about Maddy too. Nary and Maddy are two great books connected by "can't stop reading" plots. Now, we also have Azure who shows up mysteriously and then disappears. I hope we see her again. But Nary is interesting too especially with her friendship with Theo. Will they or won't they? I can't wait.

Another excellent book in the series, and I've very glad there wasn't too much wait after the previous book!

I would say that a lot of the humour would probably not be understood by younger readers. You often have to "insert life experience" to understand the jokes.

A better balance of activities (not so much on the go) in this book from the last made it far easier to follow.
