"Reha feels torn between two worlds: school, where she's the only Indian American student, and home, with her family's traditions and holidays. But Reha's parents don't understand why she's conflicted--they only notice when Reha doesn't meet their strict expectations. Reha feels disconnected from her mother, or Amma, although their names are linked--Reha means "star" and Punam means "moon"--but they are a universe apart. Then Reha finds out that her Amma is sick. Really sick. Reha, who dreams of becoming a doctor even though she can't stomach the sight of blood, is determined to make her Amma well again. She'll be the perfect daughter, if it means saving her Amma's life"--… (mere)

Lovely book reviewed for the VPRC which made me cry at the end. Reha is an Indian girl who lives in America in the 1980s. She wants to be free like her friends at school who are all discovering boys and becoming part of the "girls just wanna have fun" generation - even her Indian ones, but her strict mother and father have plans for her to stay home, study hard and become a doctor. ( Even though she faints at the sight of blood.) When Reha is paired with Peter for an English assignment, her parents must eventually give in and she is finally allowed some leeway which leads to Reha attending the school dance. But the night of the dance is marred forever as her mother is rushed to hospital with terrible news - she has leukemia. A poignant story of growing up in two worlds in the 1980s, of the love of a mother told in verse novel format. Beautiful. ( )

Gr 3–8—Thirteen-year-old Reha feels conflicted over her Indian American identity because of the expectations of
her family, the predominantly white spaces she inhabits during the week, and how to fit into both. When Reha's
mother falls seriously ill, the family must come together for an unimaginable future. With tragedy looming, Reha
figures out how to unite these parts of herself. This historical fiction novel in verse set in 1983 is a timely,
heartrending tale.

Newbery Honor book

Red, White and Whole is a powerful book in verse about bridging two cultures, family, community, and hope. As Reha tries to figure out where she belongs - in India or America -, her mother is diagnosed with leukemia. Reha had found herself becoming more distanced from her parents, but with her mother's illness she also feels removed from her friends as she copes with it.

Like the character in the story I was also 13 in 1983 so I enjoyed the music and pop culture references (MTV, Walkman, Star Wars).

This is a wonderful story - certainly elevates the middle school novel. It covers heavy topics and the words of Reha's mom may provoke tears, however, this is one of those books to recommend to the tweens in your life. ( )

This book, written in verse and laden with beautiful symbolism, is highly recommended. It describes a first-generation immigrant experience that many in America can relate to, as well as a powerful story of loss and grief. ( )
