Sewing a Friendship by Natalie Tinti - Children's Book Review

Sewing a Friendship is an award-winning book about making new friends.   Meeka, Sokron, Jonsy, and Nina (the fab four, per me!)are best friends with a fun-filled summer planned.  Sleepovers, fashion shows, and more.  When Kiki Shaver, the meanest girl that the Fab Four girls have ever known, gets involved, everything changes.  Will Kiki ruin the summer?  Why is Kiki so mean?  What will happen with the fab four? 

There’s a great introduction to all of the characters, complete with a picture and their full-on back-story.  I mean, birth date, hair color, favorite food – it’s all there!   Sometimes I wish novels for adults had that. 

Written and illustrated by Natalie Tinti.  Oh, did I mention Natalie was 10 years old when she wrote this?  I KNOW, RIGHT?!!!    Sewing a Friendship has won a ton of awards, too!

This sounds like a great book for a young girl. Now that I know she was 10 when writing it I want to read it too!

Gosh, their summer plans sound like my childhood summers. Hee-hee-hee-hee-hee! My favorite activity during my childhood summers...SLEEPOVERS!!!! I wish as adults it was still 'acceptable' to have sleepovers, you know? Freezing of bras, watching scarey movies, & MAYBE making a prank phone call or two. Aaahh, those were the days! Hee-hee-hee!
