Amazing Book That I Love

Review by snesvet

'The Whole Story of Half A Girl' is a really good book. The lesson it teaches is that you can fit in without losing who you are because sometimes we feel like we don't belong when we have something that other people don't have, and we feel like we shouldn't be in that place, but we totally should! Our differences make us who we are, and if we change our differences, then we won't be who we are - that's the moral of this book, and it teaches some really great lessons. I really like this book. I think that this book is absoloutely phonaminal! If you like books with intense mystery, things that might help you in life, and realistic but not too realistic books, this book is made for you like cheese is made for pizza.

Review by redpenguin

It was well written book. it was an interesting and also kept me on the edge of my seat . It was also very emotional story about a girl how hast to go to public instead of private school and has trouble fitting in. but I think you should definitely read it.

Review by Pearl22

I loved this book a lot, and even though a lot of other people said this I also thought it wasn't going to be good but when I started reading it, it kept getting better.
