On My Wishlist this week:
The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May, and June by Robin Benway
Publish Date: June 17, 2010

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, 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.

As you may have noticed, I just finished reading THE SUMMER OF FIRSTS AND LASTS by Terra Elan McVoy and reviewed it this morning. It was a really cute book about three sisters, and I'd like to read more like that (because I am one of three sisters). This one, THE EXTRAORDINARY SECRETS OF APRIL, MAY, AND JUNE, is also about three sisters, but they have supernatural powers. Right up my alley. It definitely sounds like something I'd enjoy and I hope I get the chance to read it!

What's on your wish list this week?


  1. Oooh, this looks interesting!

    Here's mine:

  2. What a great cover! I had to look at it for a few seconds before I realized it was the three sisters.

    I like the idea of magic bonding the three--I'm looking forward to your review.
