52 {Books} in 52: Frogs and French Kisses

Frogs and French Kisses by Sarah Mlynowski is the follow up to Bras and Broomsticks. This book picks up right where Bras and Broomsticks ended but in this book the antics are even greater. Mom, who was once a non-practicing witch has turned into a witch with a huge problem, Miri is still dabbling in magic that's above her skill level, and Rachel is still egging Miri on while trying to fit into high school now that she's back on the Z-list.

In this book, another easy read, the theme about spells having consequences are carried over and you finally get a good idea of the full scope of those consequences. The personal disasters of the first book are magnified to the point where you see how magical misfires affect strangers and society as a whole. Again though, even though you know the spells will end badly, you still wait to see the hilarious outcome of the spells. Two things I really liked about this book were how Rachel actually matured making her less of an annoying heroine and how perfectly the author captured the cruelty of people, especially high school kids. Overall though, this is another fun and light read that makes you want to grow it up a little by drinking a pina colada while you read.
