I'm surprised this book isn't getting stronger reviews on Goodreads. I laughed out loud several times (hard to do!) and absolutely loved the voice. Clever story. Hazy comes across as more mature than Junie B. Jones and Clementine, whose stupid silliness kind of turned me off. I found Hazy to be likable and relatable with her "real live" and "Mapefrl" nickname shenanigans. Hamburg has created a third-grader with a "superpower" ability who is able to see a day into the future, though she struggles to interpret exactly what the visions mean and often is wrong. What kid wouldn't want to read a story like that? I immediately went to check and see if Jennifer Hamburg had any more Hazy stories ready. Delightful.

Hazel is imaginative and distractible, often getting lost in her head. When she starts having vague images appear before her as visions, she gradually realizes they relate to events that will occur the following day. She gets glimpses of the future. Unfortunately, her attempts to put this new "superpower" to good use tend to create more problems than they solve, often because she misinterprets what the visions mean. They seem more trouble than they're worth.

Hazy's story blends her humorous narration and silly circumstances with the drama of her real worries and the trouble she creates for herself. It makes for an amusing and far from trivial book that early readers should find enjoyably approachable.
