The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May, & June by Robin Benway

This is Young Adult and therefore not in my usual genre, but let me tell you what a great change it was. There are times that I just need to read something that isn’t packing tons of factual information into my brain like nonfiction does and last week was one of those times.

April, May, and June are sisters going through many changes, some normal and well, some are not so normal. Due to their parent’s divorce, they just moved to a new home with their mom and are therefore entering a new high school as well. Not only is there the pressure of a new school and home life, they suddenly have what you might call super powers. One can see the future, one can disappear, and the youngest can read minds.

Before you go thinking that any of these things would be really good to have had in high school, you need to read this and remember something. With great power comes great responsibility. The girls have to learn a lot of about life and their powers before they really can find their place in the world and come to terms with it.

What I really enjoyed about The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May, & June was the relationship between the three sisters. I don’t have any siblings, so I am often drawn toward reading about strong sibling relationships. Call it craving what I can never have or a dream left unfulfilled, it just fills my heart with happiness. The sisters have their tiffs, their vastly different personalities and their different life plans, yet at the end of the day, they pull together and their caring shows.

Thank you Robin Benway for the escape that was The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May, & June. Benway has also written,

  3. I've been seeing this one around recently, but this is the first review I've read. Sounds like a great little escape….not too far removed from reality and yet not a HEAVY read either. Great job! Happy reading…

  4. This looks really good..I'll have to pick it up 🙂

  5. We all need a break from the heavy reads once in a while don’t we? This was perfect and cute.
