 Plot Summary

This was going to be a special year for the Parker sisters. Eve was going to dominate in the classroom and on the basketball court. Gwen was going to make the starting five and go down in history as the greatest prankster ever. Ana was going to do as little as possible.

But without warning, all three sisters gain extraordinary abilities that defy science… powers that come with a cost. Now all they want to do is make it through the school year without drawing any undue attention, while racing to find a cure before the side effects of their new abilities kill them. Eve’s temperament, Gwen’s fondness for pranks, and Ana’s predilection for money, however, are challenges they must overcome to achieve their goals. Because if they can’t, they’re dead…

 Review

Sins of the Father features 3 sisters- Eve, Gwen, and Ana – who discover that they have extraordinary abilities.  They struggle to maintain normalcy in their lives while dealing these “superpowers.”  I wished books like this existed when I was younger. Other than Nancy Drew, I don’t recall any female characters who were superstars in their own right – intelligent, independent, capable. Better yet, I don’t recall any female characters who, at the very least, resembled my brown skin or my kinky-curly hair.  Despite not reading about them in books or seeing them on TV for that matter, I still managed to grow up with a healthy dose of self-esteem. This is why diversity, especially in books, matters. Young boys and girls should be able to read books that feature characters with whom they can identify. This is a great addition to the Young Adult (YA) and Middle Grade (MG) genres and I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

Thanks to Thelonious Legend and Diverse Book Tours for the free ebook version of Sins of the Father in exchange for this review.
