Cool and descriptive

I understand what it is like to be an older sister so I totally understand what it is like to be in this book. Unfortunately it put images in my head, hence the 4 stars. I read it and understand what feelings are bubbling up inside and know what she's feeling. I totally get it.

Ok

I liked this book.

This book made me think more about the importance of family.

I thought this book was ok. I don't like the way the story never really taught Penina how to treat her sister. It would have taught the readers how to deal with siblings. But over all I think it was a good book and you should choose it if that problem doesn't bother you.

NEVER READ !!!!!!!!!!! SO BAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I agree about how it's kinda annoying when penina was only talking about the letter that she wanted to write to her teacher and how she her younger sibling says "I'm jewish", cause not everyone in the whole world like her, some people don't even know who she is!

This book makes you think that even though your sibling may be annoying, and sometimes even mean; they still they still are family. This book is about the troubles of sibling rivalry, teachers, and friendships.

The book was just fine because Penina wouldn't do something for school, which was not very smart because then she got a zero on it. It was just an ok book because Penina sometimes acts like a brat, especially at the end. But if you really want to read this book, you should.
