    The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May, and June

    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.

Audrey can't hang out with her best friend or get with her new crush without being mobbed by fans and paparazzi.

    Take a wild ride with Audrey as she makes headlines, has outrageous amounts of fun, confronts her ex on MTV, and gets the chance to show the world who she really is.

    Also Known As

    Being a 16-year-old safecracker and active-duty daughter of international spies has its moments, good and bad. Pros: Seeing the world one crime-solving adventure at a time. Having parents with super cool jobs. Cons: Never staying in one place long enough to have friends or a boyfriend. But for Maggie Silver, the biggest perk of all has been avoiding high school and the accompanying cliques, bad lunches, and frustratingly simple locker combinations.

    Then Maggie and her parents are sent to New York for her first solo assignment, and all of that changes. She'll need to attend a private school, avoid the temptation to hack the school's security system, and befriend one aggravatingly cute Jesse Oliver to gain the essential information she needs to crack the case . . . all while trying not to blow her cover.

Hi, Robin!

I just wanted to drop by and thank you for choosing "Ashes to Ashes" as a runner-up. This is my fourth contest in which I have placed, and I am enormously proud of that piece. I was also very excited because "Also Known As" seems just like the kind of book I enjoy. I can't wait until it comes in the mail.

Again, thank you very much. It means a lot to me to be one of the winners. Have a great day and best of luck with any projects you take on in the future! :)

Every little town has its secrets. This one is right in the open but everyone turns a blind eye. Come take a ride on the Broken Merry-Go-Round. Chapter three is out- comments loved, hearts welcome.
