You will enjoy going along with Lirael on her adventure to fulfill her destiny. On her journey, she finds out about her unknown father and finds her father's family.

A Series of Unfortunate Events

What other kids will enjoy abut this book is the horrible lives of the Baudelaire orphans. Even though the author keeps repeating that you should not read the series, you should, because you will enjoy the suspense and "miserability" in these "terrible" books. You will find all kinds of events whenever Count Olaf, the Baudelaire's first guardian since their parents' deaths, tried to get the Baudelaire children's fortune. Some of the new guardians get killed, and some spend the rest of their lives being miserable with the Baudelaires' bad luck following them around wherever they go. So watch out!
A Series of Unfortunate Events
(the series) by Lemony Snicket 5 stars
Students will enjoy: all the mysteries the Baudelaire orphans solve, how Count Olaf is alwasy following them at every step, and some of the suspenseful scenes in the books when Violet tries to solve something with Klaus & Sunny.
