Jennifer, Hecate, Macbeth, William McKinley, and Me, Elizabethby E. L. Konigsburg
Synopses & Reviews
Elizabeth is an only child, new in town, and the shortest kid in her class. Shes also pretty lonely, until she meets Jennifer. Jennifer is . . . well, different. Shes read Macbeth. She never wears jeans or shorts. She never says “please” or “thank you.” And she says she is a witch.
Its not always easy being friends with a witch, but its never boring. At first an apprentice and then a journeyman witch, Elizabeth learns to eat raw ends and how to cast small spells. And she and Jennifer collaborate on cooking up an ointment that will enable them to fly. Thats when a marvelous toad, Hilary Ezra, ??? enters their lives. And thats when trouble starts to brew.
