Review by Samantha Sands.
This book is the fifth in The Series Of Unfortunate Events. I would rate this book five stars, because it was very mysterious and I could not put it down. This book was a page-turner, I just had to know what would happen next. There is much suspense, and I felt sympathetic towards the characters. I would recommend this book for ages eight or older because it has some dark humor and intense moments. The story is about three orphans that have an enormous fortune. Their evil relative had been plotting to steal their fortune, and they have to escape his clutches. This story takes place at a very strict boarding school with insane teachers and a very stubborn vice principal. Their evil relative pops up again at their boarding school, and the orphans and their new friends try to stop him. Will they succeed? Will they do well in their classes? Read the book to find out.

Review by Manon Harrison.
Violet, Klaus, and Sunny go to a boarding school and meet some new friends, Duncan and Isadora Quagmire. I liked it because the Quagmires help them at the school from studying or having to run laps around the school. This book would be good for someone in third grade or higher.

Review by Kathryn Wilson.
I loved this book. It was exciting yet sad. This book is about three orphans who are sent to boarding school and are treated very badly, all while a terrible villain is trying to steal their fortune. I would recommend this book to someone who likes an adventurous, nerve-racking story.
