The boat was already waiting and I hopped into a boat of relieved faces. The group of volunteers were also on the trip to do their usual health check on this shore, especially to look out for coral bleaching. We were given a safety briefing at the start of our quest before we went our with our own adventures. Look out for stonefish and other dangerous species while on the shore! Do not bring opened plastic bags and food as it may attract the wild monkeys.
I can still see it now — having a rogue coconut smack you in the head, transporting you back into the legend of Sisters Island like a movie. You see, the legend of the Island tells of a poor widow who had two beautiful daughters.
Sapa Sisters Trekking Adventures: Hours, Address, Sapa Sisters Trekking Adventures Reviews: 5/5
Named Minah and Linah, they were very close. Their mother died and the sisters were forced to move in with a distant uncle. A pirate took notice of the beauty of these sisters and wanted to marry one for himself. He fetched Linah, threatened her uncle with a dagger, and said he would be back to marry the beautiful sister in the morning. At this moment, a storm broke out over the land, during everything dark.
The pirates take Linah to the boat and, desperate to save her sister, Minah swims out to catch it. Linah sees this, escapes her captors, and jumps into the water as well. The sisters are never seen again, but there are two new islands at the exact location where Linah and Minah were last seen. Excellent Very good Average 5. Poor 0.

So serene. Thank Susan Reviewed 8 May Beautiful interiors. Date of experience: April Thank myexplores. Date of experience: February Thank SpeedyManila. Highly recommended to fans of The Penderwicks, Nancy Drew, Scooby Doo, and any child who's ever thought about what it would be like without those parents around.

While young children may like the story, it doesn't offer much. Basically it's just 8 kids trying to hide the fact that their parents have disappeared. The idea of having to find powers and gifts had potential but fell flat as there wasn't any type of quest, they just suddenly knew or it appeared in the mysterious hole in the wall for no reason. The story element introduced near the end of a neighboring spy may add depth to the rest of the series.

Oct 24, Abby Johnson rated it did not like it. The Huit octuplets find themselves sans parents and receiving mysterious notes that encourage them to each find a power and a gift in order to figure out what's happened to their parents. The gimmicky setup might have appeal with some kids, but the story wasn't funny or compelling enough to encourage me to sift through the conversations of all the interchangeable sisters.
Apr 05, Alycia rated it it was ok Shelves: kids-and-ya. Extremely thin, plot-wise. May 10, Ellen Hamilton rated it it was amazing. I loved this very unique and interesting book! I am a very tidy person myself, so I was exhilarated to find that the characters in this book are all arranged so neatly. Each of the eight sisters has a cat, whose name begins with the same letter as the girl's own name. It's easy to know which cat belongs to which girl. Their last name: Huit, which is eight in French. See how neatly it's all done?!
Now, when their parents go missing, the girls get a note that informs them that they each possess a power and a gift. In Annie's Adventures , Annie finds her power and her gift. In the 2nd installment of the series, Durinda's Dangers , I'm pretty sure Durinda will find her power and her gift. Each sister has a book, in which she will find her power and her gift, and the titles of those books are also neatly arranged. I have some ideas as to what the powers for some of the sisters may be.get link

I think Durinda's power is her cooking or housekeeping skills; Rebbeca's is her gymnastic skills, and Zinnia's is her talking-to-animals skill. I guess I'll have to find out if I'm right or not! I can't wait to read the next books and find out what happened to their Mom and Dad! I think that's one of the symptoms that a reader can experience after entering the world of The Sisters Eight. Ha ha! If you want to know what I'm talking about, you have to read it for yourself!
By the way, I think Pete, the mechanic, has an inkling of what's going on. That's why he gave Annie those two large wooden blocks with giant rubber bands attached to them. Nov 23, Lilah rated it really liked it. I have read the whole series and I think that out of all of them this one is the worst. It is still amazing! I started reading these when I was seven and read them pretty quickly.
By the time I was eight I had all the books. I reread the series when I was nine and again when I was ten. I am now giving this series of nine to my ten year cousin for her birthday and Hanukkah! T I have read the whole series and I think that out of all of them this one is the worst. They are great for all ages and parents can enjoy them too.
