Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-In this amusing story, Sharie, 10, who has hair that "looks like it's been plugged into a 200-volt live wire," is trying to cope with life's vicissitudes: a piano recital; the uncertainty of getting a longed-for ride on a roller coaster since she yelled at her piano teacher; and an older sister who has "beautiful creamy brown skin, [and] coal black curly hair," and to whom she is "allergic." In the end, Momma intervenes and the sisters get along better, Sharie shows a talent for talking before an audience, and her piano teacher recommends that she study acting or public speaking. Although the questions or cliff-hangers at the ends of chapters become monotonous, Medearis has a good ear for dialogue and humorously depicts the trials and tribulations of preadolescent life. Sharie learns to deal with her jealousy, control her anger, and accept herself. An additional purchase.-Marilyn Ackerman, Brooklyn Public Library, NY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

    What Did I Do to Deserve a Sister Like You?

    ' I Hate Thursdays' This is a line from What Did I Do To Deserve A Sister Like You? What Did I Do To Deserve A Sister Like You? is about a girl named Sharie and her sister Sandra. At first, Sharie is hot tempered but, as time goes by, she's not. Her sister Sandra, who is known to her as Miss Perfect, does everything correctly but lately Sharie seems to be doing everything wrong. When Sharie sees her chance to tattletale about her sister she thinks ' yes or no?' I enjoy What Did I Do To Desrve A Sister Like You? for a reason. First some people may have an older sister. If you do, you can experience how tough it is to keep you and your sister from fighting. I think it would be interesting for other readers to experience this. If you have an older sister who doesn't get in your way wait until you meet Sharie's sister. How would you feel? Because Sharie has a very hot temper she often gets into trouble and gets other people involved in her arguments. Other books like ' Loser ' by Jerry Spenelli compare to What Did I Do To Deserve A Sister Like You? Loser does not explain why the character is such a loser but, this book tells why Sharie often gets into trouble. My favorite part happened in the beginning of book. When Sharie went to take her piano lessons her piano teacher spit while she talked and Sharie backed away every time her saliva hit Sharie. If you like realistic fiction books this book will make a great choice. What Did I Do To Deserve A Sister Like You? is a really easy book but, is a bit complicated. The author does not tell you everything. You must use the clues to figure out some things. I would recommend this book to 3rd to 6th graders because they ccould experience the difference between their sisters and Sharie's sister, Sandra. 3rd to 6th graders are going to love this book because What Did I Do to Deserve A Sister Like You? is comical and hilarious, even if it is kind of sorrowful. The readers will laugh like crazy when they read it. check it out!
