What would you do if you discovered you had a magical power? What if it was completely and utterly useless? 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.
