Synopsis (from Goodreads):
April Appleton is so annoyed at her older brother that she searches the Internet for a spell to turn him into a dog. When the spell works, April realizes she has more powers than she ever dreamed of! Now she has to figure out how to turn him back to normal before her parents find out. She has little time, but with the help of her friends, Grace and Eve, she finds a book of magic that will hopefully reverse the spell. Will it work and will April’s new found magic save the day?
OMG…Am I A Witch?! was such a cute chapter book for younger children. It was funny and interesting. April has no idea she is a witch and accidentally turns her brother into a dog (what little girl wouldn’t want to turn their older, annoying brother into a dog? I know I always did… still sometimes do!). She really didn’t mean to, and she has no idea who it happened, but she hopes her two friends can help her undo what she did.
This book was such a great read, the characters are easy to relate to, and the sizes of the chapters (and the book) would not be daunting for any child. The magical aspect that is the basis of this book is really cute too, and what kid doesn’t love magic? Overall, this was a great read, I really recommend this book for the little girl in your life!
