Wart - by Anna Myers

Let's say your mom passed away years ago, and your dad suddenly wants to marry your new art teacher.  You don't like that idea because she's really weird, but you like it even less when you begin to expect that she's actually a witch!  As you may have guessed, this is not a sports book, despite the excellent basketball cover picture.  There is some basketball, but there's also burglary, a lonely frog, a very popular female cousin, and plenty of mystery.

This was a much better book than I expected from an unknown author!  It was part fantasy, part mystery, and quite interesting.  If you have an annoying little sibling, a parent who wants to get married again, the desire to be popular, good friends who support you even when you're totally annoying, or a wish to read a good book, then check out Wart.
