** Danny is a [[SpoiledBrat horrible little brat]] and bully, which presumably provokes Esther's wrath on him more than anything. As far as he knows, Esther's just a sensitive girl his family's adopted and he misses no chance to insult her or make her life more difficult.

In an attempt to find an alternative outlet of love meant for their stillborn child, the Colemans take in a mysterious 9-year-old Russian orphan called Esther (IsabelleFuhrman) into their family. Max, in her innocence, was ecstatic to finally have a big sister; Daniel was less than enthusiastic due to the bullying he receives at school due to her eccentricities.
