Magic or Madness by Justine Larbalestier

Ever since Reason Cansino was old enough to remember, she has been on the run from her wicked grandmother, Esmerelda. Reason is extremely upset when she is sent to live the one place she fears most-Esmerelda’s home in Sydney. Nothing is what Reason expects from her witch of a grandmother. No black cauldrons or skeletons of small children hidden away in closets, everything seems normal. But that all changes when Reason walks through the back door in Sydney and is sent to a strange and different world. New York City. Reason has to come in terms with the fact she’s denied all these years. Magic is real and Reason is magic!
Magic or Madness by Justine Larbalestier. Mostly teenage girls would enjoy this book with there being a teenage girl narrator.
