Tanja. Sent from Germany to make Auron life miserable. Auron's mom says that she's just like a new big sister but Auron knows what she really is : a full-time baby-sitter! No way!When Aurora's mom decides to go back to work, they hire an Au Pair to take care of 11 year old Aurora and her younger brother Stewie. Aurora is determined not to like her and comes up with plans to make her leave.

Aurora is, I think, a little more nasty than your average 11-year-old, and that makes her very difficult to sympathise with. However, I may just be so removed from being 11 that I can't identify. I can't really tell, but I didn't enjoy this book very much because I wasn't rooting for the heroine. ( )
