8 Best Fiction Sibling Groups
Siblings are more likely to be mates than competitors in classic children's books, but the pacing of those old books doesn't always grab the kids of today. There are a few aspects that shape our lives as much as our parents and sibling relationships unless the stories we read in infancy are still the same. Books and reading also teach us something "more true than if it really happened," helping us to see our own life more clearly with fresh eyes. Posted On January 7th, 2021
The Johnsons, Black-ish

The Weasleys, Harry Potter Series
Weasley was the surname of a pure-blood wizarding family in Great Britain. Although their lack of cash and their sympathy for Muggle-born wizards and even Muggles made other wizards and witches regard them scornfully, they were considered one of the influential wizarding families. They stayed in The Burrow, a four-story or five-story ramshackle house "a little away from" the village of Ottery St Catchpole. In the Sacred Twenty-Eight list, published in the Pure-Blood Directory in the 1930s, they were included. They regretted their inclusion in the list, however, because they said they had ancestral connections to many fascinating Muggles. Their demonstrations won these families the opprobrium of the pure-blood doctrine's supporters, and the 'blood traitor' epithet. The Weasleys became Harry's second family when Harry Potter befriended Arthur and Molly Weasley's youngest son, Ronald Weasley. In the absence of Sirius Black, The Burrow became Harry's house away from home and Arthur and Molly acted as de facto godparents. When he marries Ginevra, Harry will finally meet the family.
