Baratz-Logsted, Lauren Annie's Adventure (The Sisters 8, v. 1), 136 p. and Durinda's Dangers (The Sisters 8, v. 2), 120 p. Sandpiper (Houghton), 2008. Annie and her octuplet sisters are surprised when their parents disappear on New Year's Eve. Only mysterious notes give them a small amount of guidance as each girl must find her gift and her power in order to find their parents. If these books were in paperback I might understand buying them for your early readers (3rd, 4th grade), but I have a hard time be interested in spending $15 per book for this sketchy series.
