I'm so in love with this book! It was so adorably cute and funny, but with some strong morals. :)
Rachel was a blast! :) I laughed through most of the book and can not wait to read the next one.. I think it's so great that a story with an important lesson can be told with such humor and fun. :)
How sweet is he? He's like chocolate mixed with cotton candy mixed with Kool-Aid. If I weren't so in love, I would get a cavity.
Description from the publisher:
Hilarious, fast-paced and bewitchingly clever, this is the first novel in a big new series for teenagers. Fourteen-year-old Rachel Weinstein just can't believe it. Her younger sister, Miri, and her mum are both witches! How come SHE didn't get the powers that could have propelled her effortlessly into school superstardom? Miri refuses to use her witchy skills for the benefit of humankind (i.e. Rachel). Which is a drag, given that Rachel has an urgent need of some supersonic dance talent - not to mention a boyfriend like gorgeous, unobtainable Raf. But maybe there's one cause Miri just CAN'T refuse. With their dad about to marry awful STB (aka Soon To Be Step-Monster), some witchy wiles may be the only way to derail a major family disaster...But a charmed life has its problems - as Rachel is about to find out!
