This maybe a YA Book but I love it.
This is what you wanted to try for/wish for/be as a kid when growing.
With it came all the trials of being a kid. The adventure,
risk, fun, and all the knowledge combined.
Yes, if you like HP [Harry Potter] you will enjoy this series.
Read it to your kids or read it YOURSELF.

Picked this up 'cause I'd heard good things about it - boy, 300-odd pages never flew by so quickly - but mostly 'cause there aren't really many words on each page. It's actually for an audience a bit younger than "YA" - good for 8-12 year olds, I'd say.
Fleeing from bullies who beat her up regularly, Nita finds a book in the library that seems to offer a magical solution. However, she soon learns that wizardry has more important aspects than just self-protection, as a matter of fact, it is bound up with preserving the world.
She and another novice wizard from the neighborhood, Kit, together with a personable white hole named Fred, set out to an eerie alternate Manhattan filled with malevolent machines and run by a satanic businessman in order to retrieve a powerful book of wizardry and save the world.
