Bailey's Books was a bookstore owned by John Bailey, the twins' father. Alex would often go there to talk with her father after she had had a bad day at school. The bookstore was sold after John Bailey's death, because the family could no longer upkeep it.
On Mr. Bailey's way home from the bookstore on the twins' birthday, he got into a car crash. The store was only a few blocks from their home, and those few blocks changed their lives forever.
