Target Age
12-18 , 6-12

With more than 70 books for young people to his credit, Gordon Korman knows the drill. Fast-paced, and both funny and scary in turns, The Hypnotists is an entertaining read and the beginning of what looks like another successful series for the accomplished author.

Jackson Opus (Jax) seems like a normal twelve-year old, except for his eyes, which operate like a mood ring—changing from green to blue to violet, depending on his stress levels. When people around him start to exhibit bizarre behaviour, Jax finds out that his eyes have more than just the ability to change colour—he is a powerful hypnotist, able to induce anyone to do his bidding.
