Probably "Out of the Ordinary", a wonderful, slightly punning title.  But
the kid she's trying to save is actually from another, magical world, and is
only her foster-brother.

I'd never thought of it before, but you're right, they are similar plots.  I
love both books, and as you say, despite the similar plots, they're very,
very different.

(And tying this into the "names" thread, the "gorgeous male witch" character
in OotO is called Icarus, which I think is great.)

Until the sky falls on our heads...

No, I haven't lost my mind - it's backed up on tape somewhere.
