Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Cheryl Williams Chang
It has been several months since the Huit octuplets have seen their parents. They realize that each sister must figure out her special power and receive her special gift in order to find their missing parents. Each sister has a specific month during which she receives her power and, ultimately, a gift. The power is only good for that particular month until the next sister in line receives her power and gift. These third grade girls are resourceful, and although they miss their parents, they have figured out how to care for each other and run the household smoothly. It helps that they have robot Betty and the talking refrigerator, Carl, to keep them in line. Everyone has a specific role until Marcia shakes things up. The girls are confused by her actions, and the questions begin to surface. What is Marcia doing? Why is she paying the bills when that is Annie's job? Why is she getting headaches? What is she mumbling about under her breath? Things get stranger still when Marcia sees the evil Helena Wicket next door typing a distressful letter that will affect the girls' lives unless they intervene. Is this true? How does Marcia know this? If it is true, how will the girls intervene? This delightful chapter book, fifth in the "Sisters 8" series for girls, is an entertaining tidbit of magic, fun, and mystery. Each installment leads the reader to the next. This attractively illustrated book is small enough to easily slip into a purse or bag. Reviewer: Cheryl Williams Chang

    Pretty good

    I have to say that it was pretty well written. I have only read up to this book. Looking forward to read the next ones. The other books in the series are good too. I recommend it. (Not for six year olds! People who think that are dumb.)

    Good Book But Not Awsome

    This was a great book. I liked the the story but, it was writen for kids from 6 years old to maybe 9 or 10 (I am 11). It was not Harry Potter or Percy Jackson but it was a worth the price. I hope this review helps.
