Spells and Sleeping Bags by Sarah Mlynowski

Rachel Weinstein for what seems like forever, has watched her mom and little sister Miri show off their magic. But now in the third installment of Sarah Mlynowski’s young adult series…………….. Rachel has powers! Plus as an added bonus Rachel and Miri will be going to summer camp, where also Raf will conveniently will be going. But to have the summer of her life, she’ll have to fix some problems.

Have to zap back all of her clothes(little accident, no biggie)

Get out of baby level in swimming

Bathe in mosquito repellent(won’t leave her alone)

And deal with the backstabber in her cabin

Sounds like fun!

I chose this book to review because it is the third book in a series that I love. But with this one, I was a little disappointed. I didn’t have the same style as the first two books had. Rachel wasn’t as sassy and kind as usual. Also the ending was not what I expected would make the story a little better. But I did love how I and the readers found out what really went down between Rachel’s mom and her Aunt Sasha.
