Poor Little Witch Girl

(2006)
A novel by

 
 
At age eleven, Verbena hasn't shown a single sign of talent for witchcraft. And worse than that--she wants to be normal. In fact, she even dreams of settling down someday and getting married! But with a mother who tells you that a) you're a witch and b) a husband won't be much use to you--how can anything feel normal? But there is hope in the form of a loving grandmother—also a witch—who takes Verbena under her wing and shows her that casting spells and causing supernatural things to take place—is not so bad after all. Told in alternating points of view, Poor Little Witch Girl is the funny, tender story of a mom who knows exactly what she wants her daughter to be, and a daughter who just wants to be herself. In the end, maybe the two aren't so different after all?
