Three sisters share a magical, unshakeable bond in this witty high-concept novel from the critically acclaimed author of Audrey, Wait! Around the time of their parents’ divorce, sisters April, May, and June recover special powers from childhood—powers that come in handy navigating the hell that is high school. Powers that help them cope with the hardest year of their lives. But could they have a greater purpose?
April, the oldest and a bit of a worrier, can see the future. Middle-child May can literally disappear. And baby June reads minds—everyone’s but her own. When April gets a vision of disaster, the girls come together to save the day and reconcile their strained family. They realize that no matter what happens, powers or no powers, they’ll always have each other.
Because there’s one thing stronger than magic: sisterhood.
My Review: A tale of sisterhood with a fresh spin. This tale takes you through the fights the love and the romances that bloom within these sisters lives.
Throw in a nice curve of the paranormal powers and you end up with this lovely tale of sisterhood, through each obstacle. A refreshing story that kept me hooked from beginning to end.
