KJP (Petersen) | 9 comments I am trying to remember a novel about brother and sister orphans, they lost their parents in a ferry accident. The sister is a witch (supposedly) and they two are sent to live with some wizarding family. It turns out that the brother has the true powers and the sister gets stuck in some alternate reality (i think).
