Praise for Nina Soni, Sister Fixer
"As in the previous book, Nina's appealing first-person narrative includes lists, which she uses to organize her thoughts, and definitions of words that interest her, but it's her lively personality and refreshing candor that will endear her to readers." —Booklist
"Sheth's clear and distinctive narratorial voice effortlessly leads readers through the intricacies of Nina's quirky, innocent world. . . . The children's Indian heritage is cleverly woven into the storyline, infusing their lives without eclipsing their American identities." —Kirkus Reviews
