This book is about a girl named Poppy Pendle who is born a witch.  Her parents are very proud because they don’t have powers and Poppy got powers from her grandmother.  When Poppy turned 7 she went to a special school called Ruthersfield Academy.  She does really well, but her real passion is baking, not magic.  She tells her parents that she wants to own a bakery, but they want her to learn magic.  Poppy angrily turns her parents into stone and goes to live in an old cottage alone.  Her friend tries and tries to get Poppy back from the dark side and fails.  Then she bakes a special dessert and brings Poppy back.  I liked that the main character liked to bake.
