Dotti gives an overview of the book:

When Gena finds a pair of cat-eye sunglasses in a thrift store, she gets more than she bargained for. Within a few days, Gena is convinced that the glasses really can show her the future. Anne and Juniper, the other two members of the Fortune Tellers Club, don't exactly share Gena's enthusiasm for her new shades. But then the glasses show Gena her dad's new girlfriend snooping in Gena's bedroom and her dad lying in a pool of blood in the kitchen! She can't ignore such a dire warning, but is she seeing clearly? Can the members of the Fortune Tellers Club get to the bottom of this mystery, or are they looking at it all wrong?
