Books, movies, music and art have been outlawed by an evil regime and its hateful leader, The One Who Is The One. Gone are the days of individualism and integrity, and with it the easy availability of cheeseburgers and rock ‘n’ roll. Such is the world inhabited by teen siblings Wisty and Whit Allgood as they attempt to evade capture in “The Gift,” the second book in the bestselling “Witch & Wizard” series for young adults.
