The Witchy Worries of Abbie Adams The Witchy Worries of Abbie Adams by Rhonda Hayter

Publisher: Dial
Publish Date: April 1, 2010
Hardcover, 224 pages

My rating: 9.0/10.0

I received this book through Other Shelf Tours.

This is a really cute and fun read. Abbie is a witch in a family of witches who live in the world with mortals. And the mortals, of which one of them is Abbie's best friend. Being a witch in the mortal world is hard especially when your little brother is just learning to harness his powers and you keep rescuing him. It kind of makes you stand out at school. On top of that Abbie's dad has brought home a kitten who they eventually figure out is more than just a cat and the book becomes about finding out who the cat really is and helping him become himself again. Lots of funny blunders and a mystery to solve make this the perfect middle grade book. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and look forward to more in this series. I enjoyed all of Abbie's family and the antics they get themselves into.

About the Book:

Abbie Adams and her family come from a long line of witches, and she’s having a tough time keeping it a secret from her best friend and the rest of her school, especially the day her little brother morphs into a wolf and tries to eat his teacher. That’s also the day her father brings home a kitten.

But when Abbie looks into the kitten’s eyes, she realizes there’s a boy in there! He’s under a spell and soon the whole family bands together to rescue him.

They are shocked to realize he’s none other than the young Thomas Edison, and if they don’t save him fast, he’ll never change the world with his inventions.
