SILLY MAGICAL POWERS, KIDS ON THE RUN. In a whimsical debut novel from the popular
technology writer.

One day, Abby Carnelia, ordinary sixth grader, realizes she has a magical power. Okay, it's not a fancy one (she can make a hard-boiled egg spin by tugging on her ears). But it's the only one she has, and it's enough to launch her into an adventure where she meets a host of kids with similarly silly powers, becomes a potential guinea pig for a drug company, and hatches a daring plan for escape.
Kids will be dying to unearth their own magical powers after reading this whimsical debut by tech personality David Pogue.

it was an awesome book, but I think that it went to fast. I think that there should be a sequel to the book because it's still really awesome. Read full review
