I love these books!! There about two sisters and a brother whos parents died in a fire. What I liked about these books is that it kind of reminded me of the Harry Potter books in a way. I also liked how when things got tough they kept trying to make them better, they just never gave up no matter how hard things got for them. What's sad is they keep haveing to live with these crazy people, since there parents died they have to live with there relatives. These are good books, that I would recommend to both boys and girls. If you haven't read these books go and check them out at your local library because all of the books in the series are good.
