Being an only child can be tough

Review by Danya

One Is Not a Lonely Number is a fiction book about a thirteen year old girl named Talia Schumacher. Talia is an only child. You might think that it is fun being an only child. You can get more attention from your parents, have more time to spend with them, have a quiet house, and not have to babysit your baby sibling. You do not have to share a room EVER, and even have more privacy. But for Talia it's totally not like that. Instead of siblings, her parents invite guests to the house and Talia is getting sick and tired of that. If you like stories that sound real you should read this book.

So Good!

Review by LittleJungleGirl

This book is amazing! It was really descriptive, and also fun to read. I like how she went to the math competition and got a perfect score. My favorite part is when the school preforms the play, and also when Talia and her friends have a sleepover. Everyone should read this amazing book!

Review by SherriKansas

This book is fine, but it's sort of plain, because there are no laser guns or three eyed blobs, and it's sort of just about her life, which is perfectly fine, I suppose, for some people. The story line was good, and it sort of sucked me in, but then when I finished it I sort of "ehhhed" it and walked away.
