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:
Clique by Lisi Harrison.
Kirsten Miller has written another Kiki Strike novel called Kiki Strike: The Empress’s Tomb. Here are a few more titles you might enjoy:
Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins.
When eleven-year-old Gregor and his two-year-old sister are pulled into a strange underground world, they trigger an epic battle involving men, bats, rats, cockroaches, and spiders while on a quest foretold by ancient prophecy. The first book in the Underland Chronicles.
Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy.
I hope you have a chance to read the other books in the Bloody Jack series:
Curse of the Blue Tattoo: being an account of the misadventures of Jacky Faber, midshipman and fine lady, by L.A. Meyer.
Thank you for your Book Match request for I Can’t Tell You by Hilary Frank. As I don’t know your age or why you liked the book (other than the genre you selected as Romance) the books I am suggesting are based on the fact that I Can’t Tell You is a high school level book and an unconventional romance. Therefore, I chose books that have romance elements in them, but are also have other conflicts with friends, family, school, etc, since I Can’t Tell You also contains those themes. Here are some other books I hope you will like.
Here are some other fantasy stories with strong (mostly female) characters (some with a little romance) that I think you will like:
Stardust by Neil Gaiman.
The story of young Tristran Thorn and his adventures in the land of Faerie. He has fallen in love with beautiful Victoria Forester and in order to win her hand, he must retrieve a fallen star and deliver it to her.
Sabriel by Garth Nix.

Here are some suggestions to try…
Remembering Raquel by Vivian Vandevelde.
Various people recall aspects of the life of Raquel Falcone, an unpopular, overweight freshman at Quail Run High School, including classmates, her parents, and the driver who struck and killed her as she was walking home from an animated film festival.
Cures for Heartbreak by Margo Rabb.
The Shadow Thieves by Anne Ursu is part of a series (The Chronus Chronicles) so you may be interested in book 2, The Siren Song, if you haven’t already read it. Since you mentioned liking historical fiction and since The Shadow Thieves (and Percy Jackson) have mythology, I’ve included some books below that have both of these and also a couple with a little fantasy/magic. Here are some other books that I hope you will like:
It depends on what elements of sociology and psychology and what ages/grades you are interested in. However, here are some that you
might find useful for teens of various ages (both Giles and Hautman tend to write psychological fiction for teens). I hope these help--
Invisible by Pete Hautman (mental illness).
Doug and Andy are unlikely best friends--one a loner obsessed by his model trains, the other a popular student involved in football and
theater--who grew up together and share a bond that nothing can sever.
