Three sisters share a magical, unshakable 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.
The power of sisters transcends into an extraordinary tale of magnificence. The story played out with simple grace and had a way to show the connection between sisters was powerful. A bond that may never be broken but it's one that has it's challenges. The exchange of gossip and banter between the sisters was one of a kind and it made you feel like a 4th sister. You could feel the sense of belonging. The sisters were seamless with the point of views changing with no problem. Each one had a voice of their own. Each power at first all I could think was how unlikely until I kept reading. It didn't seem so unlikely or unrealistic. It might have been Robin Benway's wonderful writing or just the way things played out. Either way it worked.
There was nothing in this book that I felt was to much for teens. There was drinking and the mention of sex. Nothing that was to explicit. Though I wasn't surprised by the ending I enjoyed this thoroughly. If you have a sister and/or have not read this I recommend this for you and your sister. You won't want to miss this adventure.
