    I think this book is great but it is kind of bland.

    Well, some books are full of ripsnorting adventures, and some are more contemplative — I’m glad you can appreciate both! Kate Davie

    I liked the book The Whole Story Of Half a Girl because I like to read books sometimes just to do something. Sonia and her younger sister Natasha, have to go through some tough times. First they have to move away from there school, because the dad lost his job, so they can’t afford it. This book really shows the life of a kind 6th grade girl. Kate, Sonia’s best friend isn’t that nice, and Sonia’s former best friend Sam, sort of looses her close friendship with Sonia. If you want to find out more about this book then you should read it If you like realistic fiction, and drama. I rate this book stars 3 out of 5!!

    This book looks really interesting. Even the title is interesting. I hope I can get the time to read it. I also like books with a lot of drama, so this looks like my cup of tea!

    I loved this book! I am homeschooled and this book has helped me relate more to people who aren’t. I personally wish it had had a bit more about her mother’s background but otherwise it was awesome!

    I think the book The Whole Story of Half a Girl by Veera Hiranandani is a great book. The book is very interesting. I like how the girl’s personality starts to change in every chapter. I like the character Kate; she reminds me of some people that I know. I like how the author puts drama in every chapter. I don’t really like the dad; he has problems, but if you lost a job you might have problems, too. I recommend this book for the people that like drama.

    This book was really good and I zipped through it because it was so interesting. I loved the details the author made. I know that if my dad had gone missing I would be so upset! :( . I for one would hate my mother for not understanding how I felt in a new school. I think it was nice for Kate and Alicia to open up to Sonia. It was wrong for Sonia to think she was only half a girl.

    I loved this book because it had a really good story line and it had a little bit of suspense.I liked the end of the book better than the beginning because the story really started coming together.I would read other books by this author(Veera Hiranandan) because she really gets you thinking about her books.I love this book and I recommend it to a lot of people.

    I just finished the book.I though the book was very good because the author(Veera Hiranandani) did a good job of getting you to know the characters and telling the story to you.I would totally read more books the author(Veera Hiranandani) because a really like this book and I think she would do a good job writing more book for more children to read.

    She has written quite a few other books, but some of them you would probably find more interesting than others. You can find the whole list on her website — Kate Davie

    I’m only half-way through the book but I think it is a really good book so far. I wonder if Jess is really Sonia’s friend? If seems Sonia’s family is a family only sometimes because they get in to really big fights and don’t act like a family at that moment.

    When I read this book I felt whatever Sonia was feeling. The author does a great job capturing the middle school drama. My favorite part was what happened with the green loafers. If you’ve ever been the new kid, you can relate to what Sonia goes through.

    I like sonia because as she gets more into middle school she do not change that much. Sonia always try’s to make friend by her own personality. sonia met a girl named kate. As i read the book it seems like kate is trying to change sonia but sonia is trying to be her own person.

    What do you predict Sonia will do about that? Kate Davie

    I love this book because it teaches you a lesson. A lesson about going to a new school. Like what would i be like? what would i do? how would i make new friends? Sonia acts different she acts more older and you find out what its like for sonia.
