Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
Another in the series of "Hyperion Chapters Books" designed for newly emergent readers, Solo Girl is about a young girl named Cass. Cass and her twin brothers are foster children who have just moved to a new neighborhood. Most of the girls in the neighborhood do fancy rope jumping in their spare time, and Cass wants to become a part of the team. Although she is good at math, Cass can't seem to get her feet to work as well. The eight chapters deal with Cass' attempts to become an accepted part of the neighborhood, and her courage in mastering a difficult task. The author draws on her childhood experiences to paint this realistic, cultural portrait.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-3A story that conveys several important messages. African-American third-grader Cass and her twin brothers, Jackson and Bud, have moved to a new neighborhood to live with their foster mother. While the boys find friends and quickly adjust to their new surroundings, Cass feels alone and misses her friends. Although smart, particularly in math, she cannot jump rope and envies four girls who can. However, she is taken in by the closely knit community in which neighbors look out for one another, and kindness is the watch word. In exchange for jump-rope lessons, Cass helps one of the girls pass her summer school math class. After demonstrating her newfound jumping skills, Cass is befriended by the group she once envied. In the process, she is given support by her brothers and gains community acceptance and some much needed confidence. Cass is a lively, sensitive girl, and young readers will relate to her problems. With its large print and short chapters, this story is ideal for children making the transition from beginning readers to chapter books.Carol Jones Collins, Montclair Kimberley Academy, NJ

    Read this book

    I thought this book was great because in the story this girl name Cass was great at math but she also loved to double dutch. The thing is she did not know how to do it. So she met this girl who did double dutch and they found a way to help each other because she needed help in something too. These two girls named Pearl and Cass got to help each other to get what they wanted. You should read this book to see what happens between the two girls.
