Bereaved by the death of their parents, five sisters live in a seaside
villa-growing up together, sharing their grief, experiences, and
Oldest daughter Charlie struggles to care for her sisters in the
wake of the accident that took their parents, while each of the younger sisters
narrates a volume of the series. Each girl has her own personality and point of
view, and reflects some aspect of ourselves back to us:
Enid, age 9, is
outgoing, with a great sense of humor; Hortense, age 11, is shy and likes to
be alone; Bettina, age 14, is good-hearted but temperamental; Genevieve,
age 16, is passionate about cooking and boxing.
This, the first volume,
is narrated by youngest sister Enid. A free spirit, she enjoys wandering alone
and talking to animals and anything she meets. Her best friend Gulliver is, like
her, offbeat and creative. When Enid begins hearing ghost-like screams, the two
friends embark on a scary adventure. These sisters are not perfect. They may not
always get along, but in times of need, they can always count on one another.
