The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket

Rating: ★★★★½

Picture this: you’re a member of a really rich family. You’re playing on the beach one day when a banker with a really bad cough turns up and tells you that your parents died in a fire that destroyed your whole mansion. You’re then put into the care of a really mean man who wants to inherit your fortune and makes you do all the chores. That’s exactly what happens to the Baudelaire childre*************** Sorry, my typewriter broke. As I was saying, that’s exactly what happened to the Baudelaire children. How do they cope? You’ll have to read this book (and the whole series) to find out. (One of the children loves inventing, another reads a lot, and another bites everything in sight.)

      @Meghan: I completely agree with you. I feel like there are still so many unanswered questions!
