Book Review: Hazy Bloom and the Tomorrow Power by Jennifer Hamburg

Hazy is a pretty ordinary kid, until one day when she discovers her secret power. She gets hot, and then cold, and then gets goosebumps. Then she sees... something. And that tiny flash image will happen tomorrow. And as a superpower, Hazy does what she can to stop it! Not that is always needs stopping. Or that she's the right person to stop it. Or that she even understand what the image means at all. But she means so well!

This all takes place in one week, during which her aunt is visiting, so she has to stay in her brother's room. It's also the week leading up to a school fundraising fair, and every class is responsible for a booth. For example, one class is doing an egg toss game, and one day Hazy seems an image of breaking eggs. So when a pallet of eggs is delivered to the school, and Hazy seems boys tossing the eggs outside her classroom window, she goes to try to stop them! Of course she's not supposed to go outside during class, and the boys don't break any of the eggs, so she gets in trouble. (However when her dad gets home from the grocery store and trips... well, there's the broken eggs!)

Cute shenanigans and misunderstanding ensue. Her best friend is excited that she gets to be a sidekick. Her aunt is extraordinarily helpful. And by the end of the week, Hazy might better understand how her "tomorrow power" can work for her. First in a series.

This review is a part of Kid Konnection, hosted by Booking Mama, a collection of children's book-related posts over the weekend.

I got this book for free from my work because it is published by Macmillan, my employer.
