Abby Carnelia is an average sixth grader. She gets along okay with her parents, does pretty well in school, and has an annoying little brother. There's absolutely nothing remarkable about her at all - that is, until the day when she happens to tug on her earlobes while standing in front of a hard-boiled egg.

That's the day Abby discovers there's something very, very special about her after all: she has a magical power, and there are some people who will do anything to find out where it came from.

Listener Opinions

    " I will definitely be recommending this to our fifth graders and some fourth graders. Had shades of The Girl Who Could Fly, but a less suspenseful approach. I enjoyed the characters a lot. Their different strengths and attitudes also gave me a Benedict Society vibe. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathey | 2/20/2014

    " I've always enjoyed David Pogue and, even though this was considered a book for young readers, I really enjoyed it. Pogue interjects his "grownup" perspective here and there -- but really tells the story from the young Abby's point of view with an 11-year-old's tongue-in-cheek sensibility. I found the book delightful! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Naomi | 2/9/2014

    " It was cute and funny! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 1/21/2014

    " This book was much better than I thought it would be, and it gives me hope for the future of children's literature. Best part: buffaloes, walking backwards, wearing diapers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 1/9/2014

    " Thsi was a great book full of mystery and wonder. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruby | 1/9/2014

    " The writer is very funny and you can see that within the book. The plot is cool and so is the name, I think. I recommend it to young readers and I think that they'll enjoy it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 1/3/2014

    " I really enjoyed the pace of this book, especially once they were into the "special camp." Gets a little intense toward the end, but not too scary for younger readers who read above their level. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rodney Ross | 12/26/2013

    " really original take on kids with magic powers, very well done 7.5 of 10 "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joshua | 12/16/2013

    " What a odd but nice little story... Reminded me in the second half of the limit... What a great message and what a great activity you could do with this book with an elementary class as a brainbreak... Maybe even as a science experiment... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 12/6/2013

    " Different concept of magical powers suggesting we all might have a magical power but it might be completely useless and not very exciting. Cute little story for kids. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kate Mowery | 10/23/2013

    " Good read-alike for the Girl Who Could Fly by Victoria Forester "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tiffany | 8/5/2013

    " This was a cute, easy read. It was a unique idea but the reason I gave it only three stars was the plot was very predictable. Fun book for kids. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adriana | 5/9/2013

    " I was expecting something cute and fluffy when I picked up this book. It's not cute and fluffy. I was, in fact, horrified. This is not a children's book like The Penderwicks is a children's book. It's more like Harry Potter is a children's book, Harry Potter references not withstanding. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ali Reader-Ducky | 3/13/2013

    " It was okay. This book is funny, somewhat exciting, and a tiny bit creepy. A lot of things that were supposed to be a surprise to the reader I had already guessed would happen. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 12/30/2012

    " It was a world of completely pointless magical powers. Really, what's not to like? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danyelle Leafty | 7/24/2012

    " Good, fun read. Fell a little flat at the end for me. I think it's because everything resolved so easily. "

    " While this got off to a slow start things did pick up and make this interesting enough to continue. "

    " Mackenzie and I are currently reading (listening to) this while on the way to and from summer camp. Both of us are actually really enjoying it. :) "
