What if all your wishes could come true? Blink your eyes, drink a fizzing pink potion, and poof! Life is perfect. That’s Rachel’s situation. Except she’s not the one who suddenly has magical powers, her younger sister is. And as Rachel would tell you, spellbooks are wasted on the young!

Of course world peace and cures for horrible diseases are important, but so is dancing without looking like she’s being electrocuted, winning back her best friend, stopping her dad’s wedding, and finding a date for spring fling.

Rachel’s not bewitched—yet.

    " Rachel is just a interesting fun person! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steen | 2/17/2014

    " At first I really didn't like Rachel all that much, she seemed really self centered but she grew on me. Cute easy read. I feel like it ended to abruptly but then again I know there are more in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 2/13/2014

    " Very cute- read for Mother/Daughter bookclub. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Renee | 2/11/2014

    " A fun chick lit read with a magical twist! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Olivia Vona | 2/5/2014

    " This book was good, if you are into witchcraft and love/romance. this along with the other books in the series! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samantha | 2/1/2014

    " This was a fun read. I liked that the main character wasn't the one that was the witch. It had a great lesson about how being self centered teenager can come back to bite you in the end. Funny and a quirky. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jamie | 1/21/2014

    " I loved this book especially because the setting of the book took place in new york. I loved the plot of the story because if there was not a twist of her sister and her mom being a witch it would be a typical, boring story line. But because Miri (Rachel's younger witch sister) got her magical witch powers, Rachel uses it to try to change her WHOLE life around but all of it eventually backfires her. And it would bring in a teenagers worst nightmare; a big fat zit on your nose! DUN DUN DUN! :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 1/20/2014

    " I read this when I was twelve or thirteen so it was cute, I remember, but other than that it didn't put an impression on me very well. A funny and light read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 1/20/2014

    " This story is cute. I think I'll read the rest of the series and see if I add it to my "I want my girls to read this when they're teenagers" list. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rayne Browning | 1/9/2014

    " I've read this book oh so many times. I loved it. The sequels were great, too. =) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cara | 12/17/2013

    " The main character was kind of annoying until the last quarter of the book. Then the story got way better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Courtney | 12/11/2013

    " Ya, you know I just love the whole series! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pamela | 9/22/2013

    " Bras and Broomsticks was VERY funny. I think it has made me laugh in public places as i read it. It reminds me alot of the show Bewitched but with a teenage girl. It's great entretainment, but i couldnt find much meaning to it. I'd recommend this to girls....cuz it could frighten other people. :D "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caeasso | 9/6/2013

    " Fun listen in the car with the girls! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maddy | 8/19/2013

    " The title sounds really bad... but it's super good! I'm waiting for the fourth book to come out! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nowheregirl | 6/2/2013

    " i can see why basically every author in this planet would take a shot at a protagonist who "has" magic...but i really like her other regular chicklits better..a lot better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Em | 5/21/2013

    " I liked the humor of this book!! :):) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aditi | 9/21/2012

    " this is an amazing book. it is sooo interesting and fun to read. u cant put it down. lol "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marykate | 9/7/2012

    " hahaha "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather | 8/14/2012

    " Not terrible, not great. I found myself very annoyed with Rachel--who just tried too hard to get into the 'A Crowd' and use her sister's magic to further her own selfish wishes. Rachel did learn her lesson in the end, but not fast enough for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane | 4/21/2012

    " As I read this book, the problems & situations Rachel gets into make me forget that she is only 14 years old. It seems these would happen to an older girl. But, over all it was ok. A teenage girl book for sure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mychael knight | 1/27/2012

    " i thought that this book was very interisting with how she gets her sister do do such crazy things when she should be more responsiable "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julia | 1/5/2012

    " this book was really funny but i hope the rest of the series is better than this one "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annika | 4/16/2011

    " It took me a long time to get into this book. The main character seemed so selfish and shallow. It got a lot better towards the end, and I could see it was all part of the character development. It also took me a bit to get used to the author's more relaxed writing style. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalie | 4/5/2011

    " I know that this novel is meant for a younger crowd than me, but I really enjoy re-reading it every now and then. Rachel never fails to make me laugh. "

    " This was a pretty fun book. Nothing special, and there's the usual how-to-be-popular trope that annoys me more often than not, but I enjoyed the magical bits. "
