Bras & Broomsticks by Sarah Mlynowski
Rachel’s life is like any other 14 year old girls – full of angst, wanting to fit in, wanting to be one of the cool kids. Then she finds out her 12 year old sister (and her mom) are witches. She of course isn’t lucky enough to have inherited that gene, or at least it doesn’t look like it yet. Hi-jinks insue when she convinces her sister to try to use her magic to get rid of her STB soon-to-be stepmother and help make her popular.
For a book for teenagers at time it was slow, but overall was a cute fun romp. It is a great book for the young girl who misses her Harry Potter fix and wants something to read.
Romance: 2 (Teenage crushes all around)
Sex: 0 (I can’t even give it a one. No kissing, no mention of sex. Nothing – which for this kind of book is a really good thing!)
Mystery: 1 (Not that kind of book)
Violence: 0 (No violence of any sort – unless you consider a spell to give someone pimples violent!)
Overall: 3 (Again, depending on the audience this is a great book!)
