ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- Two sisters are making sure they'll be among the first people in Alaska to buy the latest Harry Potter book when it comes out next week.

They are in the midst of an eleven-day vigil at a Fairbanks bookstore.

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" will be the seventh and final installment in the series by author JK Rowling. It's due out on July 21st at midnight.

Eighteen-year-old Chloe Bostian says it's the big finale, and all the questions are going to be answered.

The girls are living out of their parent's camper, which is parked in the bookstore's parking lot. During the day, their parents move it to the customer parking area, but at night it comes right up to the store entrance -- the front of the line.
