Ages 12-16: Frogs & French Kisses by Sarah Mlynowski

Well this time Rachel is back and she is deeper in than last time. Miri, her tree-hugging sister, is caught up trying to save the world and her mother is dating again. They are both magic-a-holics. Also Will, Raf's brother is in love with her on accident. She knows its wrong but she knows it is a great way to make Raf jealous which it already has. She is really in very deep and she wants to be a witch but she isn't. This book is pretty good but please read the prequel or else you will be left in the dark.
I give this book : ***** Reviewer: Aja
