  1. This was a great book Perfect for a wide range of ages Has just the right mix of humour, mystery, and familiarity that will make readers clamour for the next one The Huit Sisters are octuplets who were born on August 8th, 2000 On January 31st, 2007, their parents disappeared All that remains is a rock above the fireplace that leaves the girls messages that claim that each girl must find her power and her gift if they ever wish to see their parents again The girls at first are terrified who would [...]

  3. This is the story of eight girls age almost eight , eight cats, and one big mystery, according to the cover As so often happens in stories, these eight young girls are left to make it on their own after the disappearance of their parents This book doesn t have the zing of Lemony Snicket, and I thought some readers might be offended by the use of God as an exclamation God, she said as she waited for her call to ring through, I hate those automated voices they use these days I also am not sure whe [...]

  4. This is a good series book for girls ages 7 to 11 about a set of octuplets I m figuring there will be at least 8 books.each book being about a different girl and how she discovers her special powers and gifts It originally reminded me about the Lemony Snicket books because the girls parents are mysteriously missing, but that is the only similarity I found This is a mystery book for those who like mysteries with adventure thrown in.

  5. My book is called, The Sisters 8 Book 1 Annie s Adventure written by Lauren Baratz Logsted with Greg Logsted Jackie Logsted The Sisters 8 is a series of 8 books This book s genres are adventure and mystery This book is certain to keep you hanging for The intended audience for this book is ages 10 to 15 pre teens and teens But if adults don t mind kid books then I say go right ahead This book will certainly not disappoint you at all My guarantee, I love this book and I re read it all the time My [...]

  6. This was a quick, interesting read that I think my students would really like On the other hand, there were several parts of this book that confused me Who is the narrator The narration is written in a way where it appears to be one of the girls, yet they are all described by name throughout the story There are far too many characters in the story to allow the reader to bond with any of them, especially as they function as a group than individuals.

  7. While young children may like the story, it doesn t offer much Basically it s just 8 kids trying to hide the fact that their parents have disappeared The idea of having to find powers and gifts had potential but fell flat as there wasn t any type of quest, they just suddenly knew or it appeared in the mysterious hole in the wall for no reason The story element introduced near the end of a neighboring spy may add depth to the rest of the series.

  8. The Huit octuplets find themselves sans parents and receiving mysterious notes that encourage them to each find a power and a gift in order to figure out what s happened to their parents The gimmicky setup might have appeal with some kids, but the story wasn t funny or compelling enough to encourage me to sift through the conversations of all the interchangeable sisters.

  9. Extremely thin, plot wise 8 to 9 year olds would probably enjoy it, but I won t bother giving it to my 10 year old.

  10. I have read the whole series and I think that out of all of them this one is the worst It is still amazing I just don t like it as much It s kinda sappy and doesn t really get into the story in till the middle of the book or so I started reading these when I was seven and read them pretty quickly By the time I was eight I had all the books I reread the series when I was nine and again when I was ten I am now giving this series of nine to my ten year cousin for her birthday and Hanukkah They are [...]

  11. 4.5 5 starsSisters Eight is a mystery series.I loved the first eight books They were full of suspense and cleverness, and all of the girls had their own personality.I loved the plot of the series, the mystery and the characters.I didn t love the end It was very pointless, and when you re reading it you ll think All of that just for this to happen Overall, it was a great series and I would recommend it to girls who like mysteries and suspense.Megan

  12. I read this when I was so much younger, it brings me such nostalgia to see it again I don t remember much about the books as a whole, but they re all cute and have great happily ever after, so far vibes from what I can remember Another thing to note about these books is that they re told from a multiple point of view narration, and I couldn t help but find the first person plural way of narration to be a charming and intriguing.I give four stars.

  13. This book is a quick read and girls in particular might enjoy it There are interesting adventure elements of trying to find out what has happened to the girls parents However, there is some of the quirkiness of other books in this genre missing Altogether as a stand alone book, I thought it was o.k I will be interested to see if later in the series there is to give it merit.

  14. This one caught my eye at the library I ve always been fascinated with multiples I enjoyed this first one, although it was a little slow at times I might even read all of them It kind of reminded me of Series of Unfortunate Events, except they took care of themselves when their parents died.

  15. A normal Christmas day for the octuplets turned out to be a terrible case of missing parents and a chance to discover all eight of their hidden talents Annie, the oldest of them, guides their adventure to find their parents and protects the rest of them from danger.

  16. A great childhood book that I enjoyed re reading Throughout the book I was shocked at how much I actually remembered The pot is very twisted and well thought out, and there is definitely suspense.

  17. The Huit octuplets get a rather disturbing start to the New Year when their parents disappear on New Years Eve Not wanting to get split up by the authorities, the sisters decide to run the household by themselves and try to solve their parents disappearance on their own After all, the note that showed up just after their parents disappeared said the key to finding them would be finding each of their gifts and talents Annie is the eldest of the girls, and so it falls to her to keep the household [...]

  18. I didn t like this book I thought it was silly and unbelievable I would have liked it if the gifts were special, not being organized Not my favorite.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 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 [...]

  21. This is the first book in the Sisters Eight series by Lauren Baratz Logsted, Greg Logsted, and Jackie Logsted Our oldest daughter discovered this book at our local library and fell in love immediately She s already read the first two books in the series and I m just trying to catch up I found the story to be strange, but interesting and I can see that this series would appeal to a young elementary school age child just getting into reading longer chapter books I can see the formula behind the bo [...]

  22. Read this with my 10 year old daughter, who took it out of her school library for a book report I liked the angle of the story Annie s Adventures feature a set of octuplets whose parents disappear on New Years Eve The girls receive a note that tells them they each need to discover their power and gift before their parents can return Not having any adults to turn to for help and fearing being split up, they takeover the adult responsibilities at home, and pretend it s business as usual so no one [...]

  24. Reading this series with my daughter, a couple of chapters at a time we re on Book 5 I m not going to review the books one by one, but am perfectly happy to let count them all toward my annual goal When half the books on my list are long nonfiction, I think I should get some breathing room Some are better than others some are so repetitive they re really repetitive The blurb tells you everything you need to know about the plot Eight girls Parents disappeared or died They get powers, one by one, [...]

  26. This is a really cute story Great for K 3rd It is very fantastical and does stretch believability, however, at the same time, I could definitely see that this is what little kids would fatasize about, imagine doing, or imagine might happen So in this way it is perfect The adventures and mystery are very intersting and it has lots of great humor and sarcasm In fact, the dialogue of the sisters is just classic The Prologue of this story also tires to bring male readers into it s audience by direct [...]

  27. I was disappointed when I first got this book and started it It seemed unbelievable that eight young girls Octuplets could realistically be left alone and take care of themselves As I read through the book it took on a little charm This is the first book in the series about eight young girls whose parents suddenly disappear They decide not to call the police because they would probably be split up They received a mysterious message telling them they each need to find their power and their gift [...]
