    Cute how nice of the sister by ashley

    I thought it was cute because the big sister saved her little brother from a fire. And at the end she became blind because of all the smoke.

    Okie

    It was good but it was only 15 pages but the part where she goes to save the little baby it was really amazing how she saved him and got both herself and him out!!!! And then at the end when she said to the firefighter he thought she was going to pass out but she was blind!!!!!. So she saved herself and a little two year old from a burning house and she was a BLIND girl!!! Thats AMAZING
