Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 6-8–In this sequel to Bras & Broomsticks (Delacorte, 2005), Rachels younger sister, Miri, uses her magic to perform a safety spell on 50 about-to-be-slaughtered cows. Unfortunately, they are safely removed to the high school gym, causing $40,000 damage and ruining the venue for the prom. The administration thinks this was an obvious senior prank, but, of course, Miri and Rachel know better. Meanwhile, their mom, who has been a nonpracticing witch for years, has decided to resume her enchanted ways. She suddenly has more men to date than she can handle and replaces important mother/daughter time with magically zapped up ready-to-eat pizzas. Rachels first-person narration moves the story along, and subplots include her dealing with the school bully and falling in love with her crushs brother and Miris other accidentally misused magic. However, the part involving the girls father, who remarried, is a bit weak and contrived. While the story is predictable, its still enjoyable and will have a ready audience.–Kelly Czarnecki, Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg, NC

From Booklist

Gr. 7-10. This frothy sequel to Bras & Broomsticks (2005) is just as sweet and funny as its predecessor. Rachel is still jealous that her mom and little sister, Miri, are witches, while she remains annoyingly unable to levitate as much as a teacup. But when her divorced mom begins whipping up dating spells and using magic to enhance her cleavage, and Miri exhausts herself by zapping oil spills instead of finishing her homework, Rachel suddenly finds herself in the strange position of cautioning her family against their magical excesses. Complications ensue as Rachel tries to bring her normally levelheaded family members under control, while dealing with the results of a love spell gone wrong and a fast-approaching prom. Tempered with the message that nothing worth having comes easily, Mlynowski's sassy text surpasses a chick-lit label by being wonderfully fast-paced and clever. A surprise ending will have fans eagerly looking forward to Rachel's next adventure. Jennifer Hubert

After I had finished reading the first book in this series, Bras & Broomsticks (Bras & Broomsticks Trilogy), I was sure that it couldn't get much better. Fortunately for me and everyone else reading the books, it does indeed get even better! FROGS & FRENCH KISSES is the continuation of the story of two sisters, Miri and Rachel, one who is a witch and one who isn't. Since the one with the powers is the younger sister, it makes for a fine story of sibling love, rivalry, and flying tricycles.

When Bras & Broomsticks (Bras & Broomsticks Trilogy) ended, Rachel was upset over blowing her chance with the love of her life, Raf. After standing him up to instead attend her father's wedding, she's ready for Miri to try another love spell. The spell works, but as is the case with most of Miri's spells, has a few unexpected side-effects. It turns out that the glove that was used to make Raf fall in love with Rachel didn't actually belong to Raf, but his older rother, Will. Rachel now has the adoring, lovable, great-kissing boyfriend she's always wanted--except he just happens to be the wrong brother. Rachel vows to turn Will free from the spell as soon as Prom is over. After all, she deserves to attend one school dance with a guy who professes his undying love towards her.

Before she can get to Prom, though, Rachel has other things to worry about. Like that fact that Miri is trying to save everyone and everything on Earth, including whales, the homeless, orphans in Africa, and cows intended for the slaughterhouse.

In Bras & Broomsticks, readers met Rachel, a high schooler who led a pretty average life - until she learned that her mother and her little sister Miri are witches and she is not.

Though Rachel has finally been permitted to hang out while Miri trains - as long as she wears a (very unfashionable helmet) when they go flying - she tends to be more of a hinderance than a help. It seems that wherever Rachel goes, trouble follows. Nevertheless, she sticks out her chin, grins, and tries again. And again. She might not be a witch, but she has a power all her own: determination.

If Bras & Broomsticks was funny, then Frogs & French Kisses is hilarious. Stir together the silliness of Bewitched and the hijinks of Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, add the sassiness of a modern-day New Yorker and a sprinkling of sibling rivalry, and you've got a magical series.

I'm a huge fan of Sarah Mlynowski and I loved 'Bras and Broomsticks' (the first book - this is the sequel). I thought that this sequel would get better than the first, but I guess nothing will beat it. This has the same humor and witchy goodness as the first and you'll surely enjoy it if you're a fan of Mlynowski as well.

Okay, after reading Bras and broomsticks i couldn't wait until this book came out!!!! Finishing it in one day, i loved this book. Normally sequels aren't always the best but this one was a sequel that was just as good as the first. To me it wasn't better than the first but i loved it just the same. If your a fan of sarah mlynowski and have/want to read bras and broomsticks then i would definetly suggest picking up this book right after you finish the first!

The magic continues in the fun and sassy second installment of the Bras and Broomsticks Trilogy. This is a fun, light-hearted book with a Jewish protagonist named Rachel, who is a bit jealous that her sister Miri, and her mother are witches with magical powers. The novel begins on a nighttime flight during spring break in the dark, country sky. When Miri finds some soon-to-be slaughtered cows, she sends them to safety--in this case--Rachel's high school gym. Damages are high and the upcoming prom threatened.

But the prom problem is just the beginning. Mom and Miri start acting more like witches gone wild than their usual level headed selves. Mom creates a new wardrobe, complete with cleavage. Dating fills her calendar, with no time left for family. Miri's quest to save the world make her studies suffer. And of course, that all-important love spell goes predictably wrong. It's up to Rachel to impose some limits. She learns that nothing important ever comes easily.

Although Miri's "Save the World List" makes a great magical tikkun olam list, references to Judaism remain strictly sidebar, limited to flashbacks. The first-person narrative is fast-paced and smart. Subplots are predictable, but the surprise ending will make readers wish they could wiggle their noses to conjure up the forthcoming conclusion.

For ages 12 and up.
