The Witchy Worries of Abbie Adams by Rhonda Hayter

Releases: April 1, 2010
Publisher: Dial
Pages: 224
Rating: 4 stars
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.

This was a fun and very cute read.

Abbie is a witch in a family full of witches who live in the human world. Being a witch surrounded by humans is difficult on Abbie. She can't tell her best friend, a human, about witchy things and she is always having to rescue her little brother, who is just learning to use his powers, from the crazy situations he gets himself into at school.

One day her father brings home a kitten for Abbie, only it turns out the kitten is more than just a kitten, but instead a person. Abbie and her family spend the majority of the book trying to learn who the mystery person in the form of a cat is and finding a way to help them become themselves again. Only there's someone determined to keep Abbie and her family from learning the truth about what happened.

Funny and with a mystery to solve, The Witchy Worries of Abbie Adams, is a great book for middle grade readers. I enjoyed reading about Abbie and her family and even the messes they got themselves into.
