When Rachel and her sister spend the summer at Camp Wood Lake, Rachel finds she's having a hard time controlling her new witch powers. Not only does she manage to zap her clothes away, but her cabin has a backstabber who's trying to make her life miserable and root out any of her secrets. Can Rachel get her powers under control without alerting the backstabber?

A funny new twist on an old plot. The characters are enjoyable. The setting is well-crafted. Readers who like magic, realistic fiction, and humor will enjoy reading this book. ( )

Rachel has finally gotten her witch powers, but now she is being shipped off to camp, where she can't even practice. But do mom's rules stop her? Of course not!

Rachel gets to camp and has lots of issues. There are mosquitoes everywhere and her new step-mom keeps sending embarrassing personal care products. And the new girl in her bunk is a little weird -- maybe something weird like Rachel???

What will she do and how will she handle Raff, the guy she has liked for such a long time, and who just happens to go to camp with her?

This is a cute addition to the series, following BRAS & BROOMSTICKS and FROGS & FRENCH KISSES. Rachel and Miri are as witty and funny as ever, and, as expected, there is a little romance, which makes this book irresistible! What teen girl wouldn't love to be a witch? ( )

Opening Sentence: "...I'm pretty sure my knapsack is not suppose to be levitating off the sidewalk of Fifth Avenue..."

This book is the third in the series but is easily read as a stand alone. It is a fun, bubbly book along the lines of "Sabrina the teenage witch" In the previous two books Rachel has been jealous as her sister has come into her witchy powers inherited from their mother. They didn't know their mother was a witch until Miri's powers came in. Now Rachel has got her powers, she's off to Summer camp and she is in love with Raf who is also going to camp - life could not be better.

Trouble is she may have powers - but she doesn't yet have control - and spells don't go according to plan. And having her first kiss with Raf is proving to be problamatic too. What is going on? Rachel takes a while to discover what I guessed was going on - but when she did she has to try and use her erratic skills to make everything ok again.

A lovely quick read - would read more in the series if they come my way. ( )

What a great series. Rachel ends up having magical powers and heads off to camp with her 2 sisters.
Of course the magic is used and not in the way that they had hoped when using it. There were some weird turns and twists in this book but it was sooooo cute. I loved it :)
I rated it a 5/5 ( )

Book description
At long last, Rachel's powers have arrived and she's a bona fide get-your-broom-ready witch! And it's happened just in time. No Manhattan for her this summer—she's spending her vacation at Camp Wood Lake.

But she's having some serious issues:

Mosquitoes in the Adirondacks are incredibly thirsty.

Her stepmom keeps sending embarrassing feminine hygiene care packages.

She accidentally zapped away all her clothes.

And there's a backstabber in her cabin intent on making life miserable.

Good thing Rachel's a witch.
