Abby Carnelia is a special kid. While helping her mother make lunch one day, she discovers she can make a hard-boiled egg spin simply by tugging on her ears. In support of this new talent, her parents send her to the prestigious Camp Cadabra to learn more about magic. Once there, she meets other kids just like her. But it soon becomes clear that something at the camp is not quite right. Abby and her new friends need to figure out exactly what is going on... before it's too late! This book is totally super cute. It is full of age appropriate pop-culture references, fun and interesting little tid-bits about magic, and has a fun "summer camp" atmosphere. The kids' dialogue is true to life, the story is believable, and the writing does not condescend to the reader. David Pogue has written a whimsical story about coming into your own, and kids all over will be racing to find their unique power!

I bought this book for my son. Well, actually, I suggested that he buy it and we went to Fargo to the Barnes and Noble. At the store he looked at lots of different books. But, finally, he decided on this one. He started reading it in the car on the way back home. I think that he finished about the time we got back. So, it took him something like an hour to read it. In other words, its a light read. But, then, what were you expecting. David Pogue writes how to books for a living and this is only his second novel, and a children's one at that. My son has not picked the book up since we bought it. And there are other books that he does read more than once. He has read Hatchet, and the Whipping Boy several times. I know that. He has no shame in reading a book again. One of his teachers told him once that good readers re-read. When I suggest to him that he try something new instead of reading a book for a second, third, or, sometimes even, a fourth time he tells me again, "Good readers re-read." I suppose that's solid advice. I know that I have re-read the Adventures of Augie March at least four times myself. That, by the way, is a much better book than Abby Carnelia's One & Only Magical Power. But it's not really a kids' book, so maybe I should not say anything else about it now. So, in conclusion, do I recommend this book? I don't know. I didn't read it. But my son read it and he seemed to enjoy it.
