Waiting On Wednesday (36)

Idea taken from Breaking The Spine

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.

Anyone else thinks of Charmed as soon as you read the synopsis of this book? I love the concept of this very strong, very sisterly and very magical. It sounds different from Robin Benway's first book, which I love with all my heart so I really don't know what to expect. But my intuition tells me it's going to be just as great. I love the names of the sisters and, needless to say, the cover rocksssssssssss.

August 3rd 2010, roll on!!!!
