What the critics say...
THE WHOLE STORY OF HALF A GIRL
Kirkus Starred: "Like Blume, Hiranandani resists simplistic, tidy solutions. Each excels in charting the fluctuating discomfort zones of adolescent identity with affectionate humor."
Publisher's Weekly Starred: "True to life, her problems do not wrap up neatly, but Sonia’s growth is deeply rewarding in this thoughtful and beautifully wrought novel."
School Library Journal: "Hiranandani’s thoughtful debut eloquently balances humor with sophisticated issues related to cultural identity, economic hardship, and mental health. An excellent addition with timeless appeal."
PHOEBE G. GREEN Kirkus: "With all the foodies out there, this delightful series deserves a long shelf life…and many more courses."
School Library Journal: "Fans of Junie B. Jones and Judy Moody or those who like realistic fiction and friendship stories will enjoy..."
Booklist: "Age-appropriate humor via an outspoken, lovable, take-charge narrator."
