Synopsis

April, the oldest, can see the future. May, the middle sister, can disappear. And June, the youngest, can read minds. At the time of their parents' divorce, the three sisters recover these strange and magical powers from their childhood, powers that help them cope with the hardest year of their lives. When April gets a vision of disaster, the girls must come together to save the day-and their family. But in the process they learn that there's one thing stronger than magic: sisterhood.

Certainly readers will come away from THE EXTRAORDINARY SECRETS OF APRIL, MAY, & JUNE with questions: there are some inconsistencies in the sisters' powers (for instance, why, if June can read minds, doesn't she detect May's unseen but certainly not unfelt presence at the party?), and the origin ...
