Nina Soni, Former Best Friend


Meet Nina Soni!

An #OwnVoices chapter book series starring a lovable, distractible Indian-American girl and her family and friends. Great for STEAM-themed read-alouds.

"A sweet and entertaining series opener about family and friendship." --Kirkus Reviews

Nina tried as hard as she could but still somehow forgot about her school project. Fortunately, a class lesson about Alexander Fleming suggests how she might make a great discovery--and thus a great project! But with little sister Kavita's birthday party right around the corner, and her longtime friendship with Jay on the rocks, Nina has a lot to keep track of.

Young chapter book readers are sure to relate to author Kashmira Sheth's endearing series starring Indian-American Nina Soni and her slightly scatter-brained efforts to manage her life with lists, definitions, and real-life math problems. Ideal for diverse book collections. eBook available.
