|Plot Summary of Circle of Doom|
|"After Mr. and Mrs. Potward stop Lizzie Sharp's thirteenth birthday party with their complaining, Lizzie tries using witchcraft to banish her insufferable neighbors. With the help of her brothers, practical Dan and imaginative Max, Lizzie creates a magic potion out of pepper and rabbit droppings and sprinkles it around the Potwards' garden, forming a "Circle of Doom." To everyone's surprise, the following day Mrs. Potward breaks her hip and the couple moves away.
Convinced she has magic powers, Lizzie makes more potions with the help of Max, who loves the attention he receives from being a "Witch's Assistant." Unlike his siblings who socialize at school or over the Internet, Max is bullied at school and must create an imaginary family to ease his loneliness. But when Max accidentally breaks his brother's model plane, a vengeful Dan has Lizzie create a potion to destroy Max's imaginary family. Hurt and saddened, Max refuses to talk to his siblings until Lizzie creates another potion for Max -- with unexpected results.
