Be a Genie in Six Easy Steps by Linda and Cole Chapman

Chapman, Linda and Cole, Steve Be a Genie in Six Easy Steps, 326 pgs. HarperCollins Publishers, 2009. Language - G, Sexual Content - G; Violence - G; Milly, Jason, Michael, and Jess have just moved from London to a little town in the middle of nowhere because their parents want to open a bookshop. For the most part, they don't like where they are and want to move back to London. Luckily, they find a guide to becoming genies and they realize that can be their ticket back to their old lives. But the "six easy steps" aren't a piece of cake - they take work. Will they pass the steps to reach their heart's desire? It didn't start how I thought it would, but once I went with it, it was a very predictable story. Don't get me wrong, it was a good story with some new ideas about genies and magic, but it had some very cliche elements too. All in all, it was a good book, just not amazing. EL, MS - OPTIONAL.
