Overview

Jackie’s turn! Book four in this exciting new series!

April has finally arrived. How lucky of Jackie to have such a lovely month to tell her story. It starts off with fun and laughter on April Fool’s Day, and then all the beautiful flowers start to bloom and then . . . Wait a minute. April fifteenth. That’s not a fun day. That’s the day every adult dreads—Tax Day!

The Eights have never had to worry about taxes. Their parents always took care of everything. But as we all know, their parents are gone (or dead). Who will take care of the taxes now?

Luckily, the girls have Pete the Mechanic on their side. He’ll help them. But what’s really interesting is what the girls will discover while taking care of their parents’ taxes—somewhere there are other Eights. Other Eights??

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Denise Daley
Jackie is one of eight sisters, octuplets, who will all turn eight years old on August 8, 2008. Each sister has a special power and a special gift, and each month one sister discovers her power and gift. So far, only three sisters have learned of their powers and this month it is Jackie's turn. Jackie cuts her hair and, along with her new hairstyle, she has a newfound confidence. Jackie's personality change helps her and her sisters keep the disappearance of their parents a secret while they look for clues and attempt to solve the mystery themselves. Eventually, Jackie learns that her power is speed. She can practically outrun a train—but how will her new abilities help the eight sisters maintain their futuristic home, pay their parent's taxes, and keep up with all of their schoolwork? To make matters worse, everyone seems to be a suspect in their parents' disappearance, including their school principal and maybe even their pet cats! There are a few black-and-white illustrations that show the girls as stylish but with big heads, big eyes, and skinny bodies. This book is full of fast action and creative plot twists but the conclusion will leave readers hanging. After all, this is only book four of "The Sisters 8" series. Reviewer: Denise Daley

    Great

    This is a great book!! It has a good plot line and some crazy twists! I think this book (and all the other sister eight books) are for girls 8 and up! ( Even though the cover says six and up these could be scary for a 6 year old) So give these books a shot if you want a cute, fast read!!!!!

    Great book, Great Series for 7-8 year-old girl

    My 7 year old daughter has just loved this series and can't wait for the next one to be published. She read an entire one on a 2+ hour flight. She loves the characters, the mystery, and the quirky sense of humor in the writing. These characters are smart, strong, and learning to be independent. Great series.

    Best series ever!

    This is probably the best book in the series because there is a lot of action, discoveries, and suspense. As far as I'm concerned this makes for a great book!
