Hazy Bloom and the Tomorrow Power
One perfectly ordinary afternoon, a vision flashes through third-grader Hazel “Hazy” Bloom’s mind―of flying peas. The next day in the school cafeteria, a food fight erupts that involves the very same airborne veggie. After one or two more seemingly silly visions come true in unexpected ways, Hazy realizes she has a strange new power to foresee a visual clue about trouble that’s on its way within twenty-four hours. But seeing is not always understanding, and headstrong Hazy quickly discovers that “tomorrow power” sometimes only gives her the ability to make a hilarious mess of things instead of saving the day.

“This series starter strikes a nice balance between drama and levity . . . Hazy may well be a match for Beverly Cleary’s spunky Ramona Quimby.” ―Booklist
“Hazy’s irrepressible, hilarious narration (punctuated with exclamation points and spelling vocabulary words she likes and dislikes) proves fast-paced and amusing . . . Likely to engage the primary school set with its madcap humor and unpredictable heroine.” ―Kirkus
“This quickly paced tale features a well-developed main character and lots of funny scenes . . . Hazy’s voice is unique, and her quirky personality is showcased on every page . . . Harney’s pictures are charming and add to the humor of the story.” ―School Library Journal
