BRAS AND BROOMSTICKS
Mlynowski’s writing is simple yet engaging, often writing as broomstifks teen girls would think and speak. Her younger sister is. I also remember that going into the fourth book she had recently acquired a new boyfriend, but I don’t remember who he is.
This is pages of canned laughter. A friend of my parents picked the first two up for me for my birthday and I thought they sounded hroomsticks but they’re not and I’ve reread them so many times and I eventually got spells and sleeping bags as well. Miri, who makes anal retentive, obsessive-compulsive list-makers look like chaos magnets, can now do just about anything she sets her mind to.

All she said was how much she loved her dad and the sisters. Seems mom is a witch, too, her decided to live life without her powers, and Miri’s inherited her mom’s special gift.

Not that, in the end, Miri does much better, repeatedly bending to Rachel’s ideas of how to use the powers. I can see “Bras and Broomsticks” having the same appeal. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Seeing Red Whatever After I did think t What a humorous book!
Bras & Broomsticks by Sarah Mlynowski |
It is definitely a light read and somewhat predictable, but I thought it was well written and that Rachel, the main character, was likable and easy to relate to.
Rachel tries to use this to advantage by having her sister cast spells to break up dad’s pending wedding to wicked stop mom, make her popular, and possibly get some boobs. Although its premise is not altogether original, Mlynowski’s Milkrun novel starring a teenage witch, told from the point of view of her year-old mortal sister, offers plenty of laughs and some deliciously complicated predicaments.

May 08, Dhfan4life added it. Oh, the horror, the unfairness, the indignity! If you’re out of high school and not a teacherI would not recommend this one. I never facepalmed or got angry about anything because she was such a realistic character in that I could easily see any 14 year old acting in the same way. Since the beginning I never really saw what they disliked about her, like they said she was evil but she never really acted evil.
Nonetheless, I thought the trick of narrating the story from the sister of the witch rather than the one with powers was clever. Introverted, geeky Miri has world-saving aspirations, and she is unimpressed by Rachel’s frivolous desires. Also by Sarah Mlynowski. Especially, Rachel Weinstein’s life.

Apparently it runs in the family – her mom’s one too. Trite, predictable, and with a main character so shallow that if you filled her with water, you couldn’t get a puddle out of the deal. One person found this helpful.
And the more familiar both Rachel and Miri become with Miri’s new found witch-y abilities, Rachel realizes that this is all going to be wasted on Miri, who wants to wait until she’s fully trained before pulling any rabbits out of hats. It’s not that she’s not a likable character, it’s fact that she’s so flawed, it’s hard to see beyond them. Lists with This Book.
Bras & Broomsticks (Magic in Manhattan, #1) by Sarah Mlynowski
Despite my major criticisms, I am giving this book a two and not a one because it was fairly entertaining, and it gave me a new and different reading experience hating the main character. I really enjoyed this book. Rachel also figured out that her mom was a witch but never told anyone about it.
Got to the point where Rachel is plotting to break up her dad’s impending wedding with the STBSM by using her sister’s new found powers as a witch, and she’s also contemplating on how else she can benefit from this situation.
