Bras and Broomsticks

Rachel Weinstein, age 14, is just an average high schooler (well, as average as you can be when you're flat-chested and socially challenged). All she needs is a little popularity, some friends, and a boy (hopefully a cute one) to take her to the Spring Fling dance, and she'll be perfectly satisfied. But her world is turned upside down when she finds out that her quiet, vegetarian little sister, Miri, is a witch. And that's not all: her mother is, too! Rachel and Miri alike are thrilled when they hear that Miri has the power to conjure up spells. For Rachel, magic could be her key to popularity (and a date to the dance)! As well as this, Miri's powers can also be used to stop the ceremony that will wed the girls' dad to their evil new stepmother and her whiny daughter. But what if all the spells go wrong...? 
   Author Sarah Mlynowski has created a hilarious, kick-butt novel for teenage girls. Readers will love Rachel's spunky voice and will be rooting for the sisters throughout the novel.
