Endearing and Magical

  • Aug 11, 2010


The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May, and June is completely endearing and magical.
April, the oldest, is your typical older sis who is always in charge, maybe a bit bossy, a bookworm (yay!), and obviously smart. But she's completely inept at getting things right when it comes to Julian. I loved their interactions, they were always so amusing. 
May is the middle sister, and kind of the rebellious one with a past. She blends in wherever she goes. Her voice was by far my favorite, her attitude was hilarious. She's dealing with some issues regarding her father, as well as adjusting to a new school. May has her own flirtations, which were maybe even funnier, and a bit more heartbreaking at one point, than April's. 
June is the littlest, sweet, and a wannabe popular girl who just wants to be liked by everyone. She uses her abilities to help further her with who she considers the right people. She's young, so she's still learning some things about life and what's right and wrong.
As for the plot, I think the book jacket summary describes it perfectly. If you want to read a story about the bonds of siblings along with a dash of completely wicked cool powers, then you'll enjoy The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May, and June.
Highlights: Each of the girls' voices were unique, and I never got confused about who was who or who was narrating at the moment. Benway's writing is easy to get sucked into, and she handles the storyline perfectly. There were plenty of humorous moments to keep me entertained, and I think Benway did a wonderful job of capturing what a teen is like at different ages.
Lowlights: Towards the end, things started to get a bit confusing to the point where I had to backtrack a few paragraphs and reread.
