I picked up this book because it was set in British Columbia, Canada, where I live. As an adult, I was surprised at how much I genuinely enjoyed the book. It made me think of the days I read The Boxcar Children. I enjoyed reading about the sisters' distinct personalities as they approach their tricky new life, and I appreciated that it didn't feel like the author was being especially simple with her writing, (I can't remember when I last encountered "perspicacity.")

I would recommend this book for classroom as well as personal reading.… (mer)

Dark premise saved by excellent characters. The story setup is that a clutch (brace, pack, flock?) Of orphans is traveling to a new familial guardian, only to find that she has passed on. They decide to stay anyway, faking an adults' supervision. Hijinks ensue.
