One watch out for - The Extraordinary Secret of April, May and June

 The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May and June by Robin Benway



  Three sisters, three extraordinary, life-changing powers!

I hugged my sisters and they fit against my sides like two jigsaw pieces that would never fit anywhere else. I couldn’t imagine ever letting them go again, like releasing them would be to surrender the best parts of myself.

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.



This book isn't out till August, so it's a little early for a review, but quite a few people have asked me what it's like. So I shall say this.

1) It's very funny. I giggled almost non-stop

2) The super powers thing is fun, but it was the sister thing, that really made the book special.

3) If it's not the start of a series, I shall be VERY disappointed.

4) If you loved Audrey in Audrey Wait!, you will LOVE April, May and June. Get it on your TBR list! It's the perfect beach book.

A proper review nearer the release date. Which is August 3rd 2010.

Aw, thanks for letting us know! I'm DYING to read this book and hopefully I'll be able to get an ARC in the next few weeks! I absolutely loved Audrey so I expect nothing less of April, May & June! I'm already loving the premise, it just has so much potential and with Ms Benway's talent it's bound to be nothing short of fantastic and hilarious! Cannot wait to get my hands on this one!
