Nina Soni, Sister Fixer

Coming Spring 2020

Nina Soni, Sister Fixer

by Kashmira Sheth
illustrated by Jenn Kocsmiersky

The second title in a humorous series featuring a charming, distractible Indian-American girl and her family and friends.

A long rainy stretch during spring break has Nina restless and hungry for a new project and aggravated with little sister Kavita’s embarrassing behavior. A fresh pile of dirt just delivered to the neighbor’s house for a landscaping project ends up being too tempting to resist. Can Nina fix Kavita and create something amazing at the same time? With her sister’s help, Nina launches a grand engineering project—with unexpected consequences.

Readers are sure to relate to author Kashmira Sheth’s endearing Nina Soni and her slightly scatter-brained efforts to manage her life with lists, definitions, and real-life math problems.
