The book I'm reading, A Series of Unfortunate Events, A bad beginning, was written by Lemony Snicket. It is the first book of thirteen and contains the beginning of misery for three young children. The three Baudelaire siblings had a great life, with kind parents, and wealthy family. That is until one unfortunate day while they were on the beach they received the horrid news of a fire that burned down their house and took their parents along with it, from a man named Mr.Poe. Their luck went down from there, itchy clothes, dirty houses, cold porridge, cruel guardians and evil men out for the Baudelaire fortune. This book has no happy ending, no happy beginning and no happy middle, its just one disaster after another.
