Nancy Clancy Sees the Future by Jane O'Connor. Nancy thinks she may be able to read the future . . . and all signs point to her being a true clairvoyant--that's fancy for fortune-teller. Nancy tries her hand at fortune-telling but quickly learns it's a bit more complicated than she thought. Does Nancy really have special powers, or is it all just a coincidence? October 2013.
