Note: 
A breezy, funny and poignant novel for teen age girls, with acute perceptions of concerns such as popularity, pimples, bra size, school dances and family dynamics. The heroine, Rachel Weinstein, has a mother and little sister who are witches, and those powers are turned to various endeavors like preventing their father from re-marrying. Judaism is not central to the plot and in one scene, the family eats lobster. Rachel's flaws and strengths of character are depicted and in the end, she learns some important lessons about true friends, true love, and the limits of getting what you want.
