As I was reading Nothing but the Truth(and a few white lies) by Justina Chen Headley, Patty Ho the main character and she has a belly-button grandma. If you can relate to this book by having a strict mother or a goody two- shoes brother, you might like this book.

Patty Ho is half taiwanese and half white girl who is disobedient, ungrateful daughter. her brother Abe comes off bad and then being “the golden child.” There's belly-button grandma too. She predicts what Patty’s future is going to look like or how it’s going to go. Patty have hard times being half taiwanese and half white. She also get picked on because of her last name being “Ho”. Patty’s mom is very strict and always give Patty lectures. On the night of Spring Fling Patty was with an old lady thumb in her belly button(belly-button grandma). Janie, Patty’s best friend tells her mom Sharon and Patty what happens at the Spring Fling. It left Patty in surprise and disgust after Janie was doing talking. Patty is being forced to go to math camp at Stanford University Math Camp(SUMaC).

I learned from this book that no matter how you feel about yourself just do you and not worry about everyone else. Also that just because you don’t fit in doesn’t mean that you don’t have friends that won't help you if you get picked on, you can say something to them and find a way to solve it instead of not bringing it up to someone like an adult.

I liked the most from this book is how the mother is on Patty. After reading this it made me look at what my mom is doing for me. I think that people who may not understand why there parents are the way they is might like it because they can why the parents doing what they doing.

Potential readers might not like this book because of the stereotypes. The one thing that could have been different is how some of the characters came of on other characters.

Patty has an very interesting personality. Patty’s mom want her to date a taiwanese guy and not date a white guy like her father.” Belly-button grandmother says you need Tonic Soup” Patty’s mom tells her but doesn’t like the smell of the soup. Patty’s mom tells he that she got to eat the soup but let her brother Abe go and he does not have to eat the soup.

This book connects to be because sometimes I have trouble trying to see where I could fit in at or a way to keep me from feeling left out.

The whole review is about a girl named Patty who is disobedient and ungrateful. Patty never felt like she belonged where she at because she is half taiwanese and half white. She in the end is nice and grateful to her mom and help her mom out with her life. I think kids that is over the age of 10, any kids that like bullying other kids, or kids who like being disobedient and ungrateful to their parents should read this book because they can see how the characters could relate to their life or someone else’s. I rate this book a 4 because it was kinda interesting to me and I seen how a someone else live a life somewhat the same as mines.

Wow, this was a fast read. A good one, but I honestly wasn’t expecting to be done that quickly. (And I’m normally a quick reader to begin with.)

I did have fun reading this, and it’s a very light read compared to Girl Overboard. Patty’s self-identity crisis is far different from Syrah’s, and I like that this really touches more on cultural identity. Patty’s not only described as being physically awkward, but also emotionally awkward. It makes her feel a little more grounded. I liked that she has trouble relating to her friends and the other kids at her school, and a large part of that is because she’s half-Asian. I liked her budding friendships with Anne and Jasmine, especially since the focus is on more their support for each other. I also really liked how Patty began to open up to her mother, after finding out the truth about her father.

That said, a lot of the book feels underdeveloped. After the revelation about Patty’s father, the rest of the plot clips by at an extremely fast pace. There’s several other plot developments, but they’re only touched on and never given full details. I wanted to know more about why Patty likes making up new words, I wanted more of her relationship with her Aunt Lu, I wanted to see her adjust more to math camp—there’s a lot that really doesn’t get developed. The book feels like it’s the first half of another book, aside from the last chapter. It really could have been a lot longer, and it feels like there’s a lot more to the story here.

It’s not a bad book, as I did enjoy reading it. It just feels like that it’s not as fleshed out.
