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

April, May and June are sisters starting a new high school.  And then one day something extraordinary happens and each gains a new "superpower" and they must figure out what to do with them. 
I hate the school library. It always smells like old yellow paper and pencil shavings and nerds. April always say, "That's just the smell of history and knowledge." She's ridiculous sometimes. p.44 ARC
This book.  I was ready because how gimmicky is naming the sisters April, May and June.  It's sort of an eyeroll.  And at first I didn't like the alternating chapters because I couldn't keep track of who was talking.  But then I got into the rhythm.  My favorite girl was May though I identified with April too.  Roll them into one minus the superpowers and you have me as a teenager only much less assertive.  This book was funny and sarcastic. combined with a great extraordinary story.  I loved how each girl reacted to getting this powers and how each used them.  I liked the boys and how the girls interacted with them.  I was less fond of the "disaster" that the original book description talks about.  I expected it to be something amazing and was a bit disappointed.  Anyway, I'm glad I stuck out the first couple of chapters because it was worth reading.

Also FOR ANYONE WHO HAS READ THE BOOK, what was the deal with Avery?  I felt like there was something more with her and I have no idea what it was.  Did I miss something?
