The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May and June

October 15, 2010 at 1:29 pm Leave a comment

Sisters April, May and June couldn’t be more different:  April is the serious, practical one; May is moody and guarded; and all June wants is popularity.  But nothing brings people closer than a shared secret, and these sisters have an amazing one: they each have a special power.

If you could choose between seeing the future, becoming invisible, or reading minds, which would you choose?  They all seem great, right?  So they seem to April, May and June…at first.  But having a sister who can secretly follow you or read your every thought or see your future isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.  Can the sisters control their powers, or are their powers controlling them?

My Review: I read The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May and June right after reading a disappointing sequel, and I’m so glad I picked this one up at that moment!  The book made me laugh, but it wasn’t trying too hard to be funny.  It wasn’t full of angst, but there was enough real emotion to make me care about the sisters’ fate. It was a quick read with great characters – not just the girls, but their friends and love interests, too – that made me want to keep reading.

Each sister narrates part of the story, rotating chapters between April, May, and June, which normally I don’t love, but in this book, I enjoyed it because their personalities are just so different.  They even reminded me a little bit of me and my two sisters (I’d probably be May.  Just saying.).  Hope you’ll pick up The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May and June by Robin Benway, now available at the library.
