Oh, no. Oh, no. Oh, no. Oh, no! May is almost over and that means only one thing: Petal's month is about to begin. For most people, this would be a good thing. They would look forward to discovering their gift and their power. But not our dear Petal. As far as Petal is concerned, it could stay May forever.

At least the sisters have some excitement in their future: The weddi

Another disappointing story in the Series. The story still pushes too far the line between acceptable suspension of reality for that whimsical indulgence of fantasy versions of life and unbelievability and outright negation of real life. It also pushed this line so much I found the scenarios to seem almost stupid and annoying. Also, this situation/issue between believability and fantasy could have been completely remedied had the storyline with the Petes taken a different turn in Marcia's Madnes ...more

Recommends it for: children starting to read chapter books
This is the sixth book in the Sisters Eight series by Lauren Baratz-Logsted, Greg Logsted, and Jackie Logsted. Our oldest daughter discovered the first book of this series recently at our local library and fell in love immediately. We've borrowed the next few books in the series and she's read several of them quickly in succession. I enjoy reading the stories after she does and discussing the plots with her.

We read the last book together, but for some reason, I would quickly fall asleep while r

While I still love this series, and heartily recommend it to young readers every chance I get, this one was not as good as I was hoping / expecting. Maybe it's just been enough of a time lapse for me between reading the installments of the series, but this one seemed to lack a bit in the plot department....

June has finally rolled around and it's Petal's turn to receive her power and gift... but she doesn't want it! She takes to hiding under her bed in the hope of hiding from her 'turn'. Luckily
This is the most annoying book of the series so far, with Petal constantly whining throughout the book. She's so annoying :(

At the end of the previous book, you know that the Eights are invited to their aunt and uncle's wedding party in France, probably have guessed who else they'll be seeing there; yeah, their looney aunt who previously tried to kidnap them. There you'll also find more info about the Huit family and something about "the other eights". Yes, the plot thickens; which is a
The Offspring each received their signed copies, and so far two of us have finished reading it. Yes, they and I feel a special kinship with the books, being present at the beginning. I've got no objectivity, and I know it. We love the sisters, the powers, the gifts, the mysteries, the humor, the cats, the mad science. Probably this is printed in the best font ever.

I can't help it. Even though sometimes Petal's little idiosyncrasies are REALLY annoying and a few of the sisters are constantly snipping at each other ... I still like these books! Surprising little lines along the way make me laugh.

We've heard about
Annie, Durinda, Georgia, Jakie, and even Marcia, but now it's time to let the "child" of the family shine, if ever faces the fact that she can't stay under her bed forever

The books in the series are weakening in progression. Also, I really do need to turn "Rebecca sneered" into a drinking game.

Can't remember library books ever having had such heavy usage at our house! In three weeks, I've read the series once, but C is halfway through a third round already!
A very loose three stars. Didn't enjoy it as much as the rest of the series. Probly cause Petal's character drives me batty.
