Jessica Haggerthwaite is a girl with a cool, logical mind who has always planned to be a world famous scientist one day. She and her brother, Nat, are not impressed when their mother decides to set up a business...as a professional witch! The kids at school, and in fact the entire town, find it amusing, but how will she ever win the Nobel Prize with her mother embarrassing the family like this? Mother's spells don't always go exactly as planned either, which only adds insult to injury. So Jessica sets herself up as "Jessica Haggerthwaite: Witch Dispatcher", intent on thwarting her mother at every turn and saving her family's reputation, no matter what her mother wants!

A funny and completely refreshing first novel that shows just how difficult it is for families to get along, all the time.
