The Extraordinary Secrets Of April May And June

By Robin Benway

Summary: 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.

My Thoughts: First off, I want to say that I loved Audrey,Wait! However I loved Audrey, Wait! a little bit more than The Extraordinary Secrets Of April May June. I think that is mainly because it didn't jump around characters so much. In this story, we are introduced to three sisters April, May, and June. Each one has their own personality! Each one has their own story and problems. They also have their own qualities!

They realize they share a little bit more than just being sisters. Each one can do something a little different than normal people. One can read minds, one can disappear, and one can see the future. Pretty cool, right? Not always. Just think about it. Would you want to know everything that is going on inside your sister's mind? Would you want to go invisible when your about to kiss a boy? Or what about seeing something happen that maybe you wish you didn't have too?

I enjoyed this book a lot. It took me a while to get used to the girls. I would confuse them. Trying to remember who was dating which guy, who had which power. After a while though, it comes together nicely and you form a bond with each sister. I liked each of the side characters. And I especially liked the romantic interests, the boys! I liked the romance, the bonds of sisterhood, and the plot of this story. Its a quick fun read.

Overall: Liked it a lot. If you have sister's you can totally relate to this book (I have 4 sisters).

Cover: Love It! I've heard mixed feelings on this. Some people like the different colors, some don't. I am one of the ones who do. I think its pretty and makes it more appealing. Next time you order books, order this one along with Audrey, Wait! and be prepared to laugh.

What I'd Give It:

OK, this sounds like it has some elements that are worth reading, but I am not sure I really would like the confusion aspect. Enjoyed your review though and will maybe borrow this one from the library.
