Overview

Annie's Adventures (The Sisters Eight Series #1) by Lauren Baratz-Logsted, Lisa K. Weber


A rather large problem has befallen the Huit girls. (Sisters, actually. Octuplets to be exact.) One particular New Year’s Eve, the girls wait for their mommy to bring them hot chocolate and their daddy to return with more wood for the fire. But they don’t. Mommy and Daddy, that is. They’re gone. Poof! Maybe dead—no one knows for sure.
You must see the problem here. Eight little girls on their own, no mommy or daddy to take care of them. This is not a good thing.
So now these little girls, must take care of themselves. Get to school, cook the meals, feed the cats (eight of them, too), and pay the bills. They can’t ask for help, oh no. Any self-respecting adult would surely call in social services, and those well-meaning people would have to split them up. After losing their parents, being split up would be completely unbearable.
At the same time, the question remains:What happened to Mommy and Daddy? The Sisters Eight (as they are called, affectionately and otherwise) are determined to find out. Luckily, they do seem to have someone or something helping them. Notes keep appearing behind a loose brick in the fireplace.
It’s a good old-fashioned mystery with missing (or dead) parents, nosy neighbors, talking refrigerators, foul-smelling fruitcake (is there any other kind?), and even a little magic. Eight little girls, eight cats, and one big mystery—let the fun begin!

Annie’s Adventures, wherein the girls’ parents go missing (or die) and the girls learn each one has a power and gift. Annie, being the oldest, is the first to discover hers.

"The Sisters 8: Annie's Adventures" is a great book and the first in a series. It is creative, funny, and the kind of book you won't want to put down. Anyone who has a creative mind and a sense of humor would love to read this book. The main characters are Annie, Durinda, Georgia, Jackie, Marcia, Petal, Rebecca, and Zinnia Huit. They are octuplets. They were each born one minute after the other. They all have brown hair and brown eyes. The story is about the octuplets and what happened when their parents disappeared on New Year's Eve. Their mom went to the kitchen to make eggnog for them, but she never came back. Their dad went out to the shed to gather firewood. He also never came back. The octuplets try to find their dad in the freezing cold night, but all they find is an empty shed. They try to find their mom in the kitchen, but she isn't there, either. In the drawing room, they find a note that says they each possess a special power, and when they discover what their powers are they will each get a gift and their parents will come back. The note is not signed, so it is a great mystery for the Huits as they search for their parents and find their powers along the way. This book is the first book of a series. It is Annie's story. She is the oldest and the first to discover her power and find her gift. With each book in the series, you will follow the siblings on their quest to find their parents and discover their powers and gifts.

On New Years Eve the eights parents become missing or dead as Rebecca would say. Now the eight seven year olds are living by themselfs. Now they must keep the world from knowing that. They will each get their oen power and gift! And it will all lead to finding their parents. I think this was a great book! Same as the other books in this series! Its cool how each girl gets their own power and their cat gets the power too!!! I reccomend this for girls 8 and up!! ~Stay Beautiful *:D ~DD was here

I'm a teenager, so I usually don't read books about elementary school students. BUT sometimes I pick up random books off the shelf at the library. And I'm glad that last time it was this one that I picked up. For one thing, it's about cats, which are my favorite pets. And for another, it's very well written. I love the characters, and the entire plotline is very funny and exciting. Overall, this is one of the best children's books I've ever read. :)
