In case you don’t know, it is the first in a series (Frogs and French Kisses; Spells and Sleeping Bags; and Parties and Potions). You mention liking books about growing up but that you also like fantasy. Since Bras and Broomsticks is about a modern teenage witch, it has a little fantasy and a lot of modern humor. So, I wasn’t sure if you wanted something modern and funny or something fantasy about growing up, so I’ve included both:

 

Modern/not fantasy:
