Reviews

Gr 6-9-Sarah Mlynowkski's novel gives listeners the best examples of high school angst (Delacorte, 2005). It is the story of two sisters, Rachel-a Manhattan high school freshman, B-lister, and math wizard, who can't dance to save her life-and her sweet 12-year-old sister, Miri-a vegetarian who excels in the martial arts and has just discovered that she's a witch. When an opening comes up in the highly sought after fashion show extravaganza, Rachel convinces Miri, who is forbidden to use her magic, to come up with a potion to help her become a great dancer. In an additional plot twist, their father is about to remarry. The girls don't like their "soon-to-be-stepmonster," and they don't want to inherit a stepsister or have to wear hideous bridesmaid dresses. Could a spell take care of this, too? Needless to say, the sisters get in over their heads and havoc ensues. The good news is that the author plans a sequel to this delightful book. Actress Ariadne Meyers gives each character a distinct voice and personality. She does a superb job or portraying both humor and adolescent desperation. Teen fans of Meg Cabot, Louise Rennison, and Sue Limb will enjoy Bras and Broomsticks and eagerly await its sequel.-Jo-Ann Carhart, East Islip Public Library, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
