It's tough to be a nonmagical teen witch

July 25, 2006|by ELINA MIR

"Frogs and French Kisses" is your classic story about a witch family with a modern twist. Rachel, 14, is still struggling with the fact that her mom and Rachel's younger sister, Miri, are witches, while Rachel can find no magic in herself.

Then, her mother, a nonpracticing witch, starts to use her powers again - for dating. Miri becomes obsessed with saving the world from environmental catastrophe. Rachel's prom might be cancelled because of a spell. To top it all off, one love potion she really wanted to succeed has gone horribly wrong.

This 288-page book is hilarious. I think anyone who likes modern fairy tales with a twist would love this book. You should also check "Bras and Broomsticks," the first book about Rachel and Miri.
