Nina Soni, Former Best Friend
by Kashmira Sheth ill by Jenn Kocsmiersky
Nina Soni’s life just got more complicated. She accidentally destroys her best friend's art project. Nina fears that Jay will no longer be her friend. She is stymied when her teacher assigns a Personal Narrative Project. She has nothing to write. Her life is as boring as plain rice.
Then she discovers an interesting phenomenon that will be the basis for her person narrative. To her dismay, she learns that her idea is the same experiment used by Jay at last year's science fair. She is discouraged.
When her sister's birthday party plans fall through, Jay and Nina come together and develop a clever solution to the birthday dilemma. Upon reflection, Nina realizes that retelling events of the past twenty-four hours will make an interesting writing project.
The narrative is liberally sprinkled with her unique definitions. Some are spot on. All feature her quirky perspective.
For=get-ful-ness means your mind becomes so full of new thoughts and ideas that it pushes out the old ones.
Former means once-upon-a-time.
