Nina Soni is a lovable, distractible Indian American girl with big plans and cast of family and friends to help her make her realize her dreams—or resolve the chaos that often results.

Her brain is full of wonderful ideas that run on different tracks. It makes her a precocious (Pre-co-cious means someone who is doing things earlier than expected) 4th grader.

Nina loves:

    • Her family (even family members who are halfway around the globe)
    • Her friends
    • Words and definitions
    • Real-life math
    • And one more thing…
    • Oh yes, lists!

Middle grade readers are sure to relate to Nina Soni and her entertaining efforts to manage her life with lists, definitions, and real-life math problems. Perfect for STEAM enthusiasts.
