Description

Brothers. Detectives. Witches? Meet Pete and Alastair Montague in the first installment of a new graphic novel duology that is the Hardy Boys meets Paper Girls.

Pete and Alastair Montague are just a couple of mystery-solving twins, living an ordinary life. Or so they thought. After a strange storm erupts on a visit to the beach, they discover there is more to their detective skills than they had thought. Their guardian, David Faber, a once prominent professor, has been keeping secrets about their parents and what the boys are truly capable of.

At the same time, three girls go missing after casting a mysterious spell, which sets in motion a chain of events that takes their small town down an unexpected path. With the help of David's daughter, Charlie, they discover there are forces at work that they never could have imagined, which will impact their lives forever.

An exciting new graphic novel from innovative creators Nathan Page and Drew Shannon that is at once timely and thrilling.

Editorial Review

"Hints at a complicated institution of magic and questions about the twins' parents point toward adventures to come in this fantasy-mystery series with impressive depth." —Booklist, Starred Review

“The art is charming…. The sequences featuring witches are especially striking…. Set against the backdrop of the late 1960s burgeoning gay rights movement, the tale also explores the complications of grappling with an LGBTQ+ identity in more close-minded times.” —School Library Journal

Reading like an aged-up supernatural reimagining of classic Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew, this magical mystery graphic novel—lushly rendered in full color and set in the summer of ’69—makes full use of its vintage vibe to offer something new.” —The Bulletin
