Shelby & Shauna Kitt and the Alterax Buttons (Book 2)

"The long-awaited sequel to her first book does not disappoint.  From early on we are reminded of Marchesi’s ability to create magical worlds as we are introduced to new and entirely wonderful experiences together with this dynamic twin duo.  Prepare to be wowed by Shelby & Shauna Kitt and the Alterax Buttons.  But we highly recommended you start in order, beginning with Shelby & Shauna Kitt and the Dimensional Holes.  And make sure you have some time on your hands when you can really dive into these books.  If you don’t, please remember we warned you; these books are sure to find you enraptured from the first to the very last page."

Shelby & Shauna Kitt and the Dimensional Holes (Book 1)

"I’m not too sure where to start the review because this book was, literally, out of this world! I’m not normally interested in science-fiction, but the concept is so original, unique and intricate that it was hard for me not to get swept away." A Life Between Pages

"I do not read a large amount of science fiction, but Shelby & Shauna Kitt and the Dimensional Holes may change that for me. The characters are realistic and engaging. The setting is magical--I want to take a trip to Miriax. The story drew me in and kept me guessing until the last page. I hope there is more to come for Shelby, Shauna, Jit, Vanessa, Marian and Lendox because I very much want to see them all again." The Book Addict


"Not only did I love this book, I couldn't put this book down. P.H.C. Marchesi has created a whole other universe, a place where you can get lost in forever." The Book Blog Experience

"Marchesi combines magical genius and some science and take us on a ride with these young characters. Young adults and adults will love the story alike. A great read to devour this summer." 

The Pen & Muse Book Reviews


"[. . .] this is a really fun read that has adventure, humor and a few hidden messages about the power of positivity that are worth considering. While I thoroughly enjoyed the book, I suspect that the intended audience (middle-graders) will enjoy it even more!" A Reader's Ramblings

"I would recommend this book to people who like adventure and fantasy. . .It was very entertaining and I didn't want to put it down until I finished it." 13-year-old Ben Weldon, ReaderViews Kids 

"The plot was a complicated web that spanned across several dimensions and had me flipping pages until the end. With wacky characters being introduced along the way, Shelby and Shauna Kitt went on an adventure to save Earth. Answers to the mysteries surrounding both the characters and the many dimensions are slowly revealed. I really enjoyed the white-knuckle part of their adventure. My younger brother is reading this soon and I have a feeling he is going to love it." A Reading Vacation

"I gulped this book down in one sitting. I couldn't wait to find out what happened to Marina and what was really going on with Dale Falconbridge. I'll be keeping this book on my kindle to read again, and hope that Shelby and Shauna Kitt will be going on further adventures. Highly recommended." Starships and Aliens

"A few friends and I started an indie e-book book club and this was one of the first ones we read together. We chose this book because we noticed the author had a PhD in English. We figured it had to at least be well-written. And it was!. . .I loved the special powers that Shelby and Shauna have. I found myself wishing I could manipulate gravity to make myself lighter. ;) . . . we all really loved this book. We can't wait for the sequel. :)"
