Goodreads summary:
Three sisters, three extraordinary, life-changing powers! 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.

How cool does this sound?! I've heard great things about Robin Benway, and even though I haven't yet read Audrey, Wait!, I think I'm going to love her writing and ideas. Plus, this cover alone is worth owning!

I love high-concept...even if this sounds a lot like the tv show Charmed.

I love the sound of this! Especially the way that the sisters' special talents relate exactly to what the oldest / middle / youngest sister probably would be like. It sounds so clever. Very cool pick.
